Revitalizing, Re-energizing, and Safeguarding the Cultural Heritage Contents on the Digital Platform

______________ 

Digital conservation of cultural heritage, born-digital heritage conservation and heritage restoration of the digital/analogue work assist to integrate the tangible and intangible heritage on the digital platform. Digital heritage contents, as the extension of cultural heritage, help to broaden the format of heritage narrative in the digital realm. The Qutan Monastery Project strives to safeguard, sustain, and revitalize the Asia heritage contents in the digital realm.

Project Narrative

    Qutan Monastery Project is the team-based, collaborative research project to revitalize, reconnect, and reenergize the tangible/intangible heritage conservation through the digital platform.  Qutan monastery was established in the Ming Dynasty of China. The major conservation dated back in the 1990s by scholars, conservators, and the Bureau of Cultural Relics of China. The mural paintings, unearthed cultural objects, the wooden carpentry structure of the monastery, the literary works related to the monastery, and the comparative studies around the Ming dynasty, are the abundant contexts to explore. Mural paintings/structural form and iconography research on the open-access platform online assist scholars with limited accessibility to study the monastery.
