DIGITAL HERITAGE AND NARRATIVE WORKSHOP

Digital Heritage and Narrative workshop strive to explore the tangible/intangible aspects of digital heritage conservation. It further discusses collaborative opportunities to conduct the high-resolution site survey for scholars and institutions at local authorities. For preserving and making sustainable of the tangible cultural heritage, three-dimensional models, utilization of digital sculpting and other innovative perspectives are discussed. For extending the established results and making the digital resources available to broader audiences, the workshop further welcome researchers and projects relate to interactive info-motion interface and apply the knowledge of digital heritage to STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics). The workshop expects to bridge the platform for archeology, computer graphics, and interactive info-motion design. For further protecting, educating and consolidating “building dwelling thinking” through digital heritage preservation, the workshop helps to preserve the digital humanity, and reach out to museum staffs and academia. By the joint effort of global institutions and local authorities, the project will also help to foster and enhance the mutual understanding through intercultural collaborations.

DIGITAL HERITAGE : DIGITAL SCULPTING, PROJECTION MAPPING AND BEYOND"

Gandhāra and Kyoto, two of the ancient cities at the nodal points of the Silk Road, symbolize the world heritage for culture, business and religion. To-ji temple for example, the temple listed as one of the UNESCO world heritage sites at Kyoto, Japan, symbolizes the beginning of Esoteric Buddhism in Japan, and the inherit of ancient wooden carpentry architecture code and civic engineering. Monk Kukai’s 3D mandala at Lecture Hall in To-ji, not only combines the intangible deity making techniques / tangible cultural heritage, but also represents the inter-cultural significance of religious art, graphic design and belief. To-ji temple has luckily survived from natural disasters, political instabilities and World War II demolishment in Japan. Its conservation and sustainability become even more significant.

 

位於古絲路兩端的古城 - 犍陀羅 (Gandhāra) 與京都,象徵著人類文化、商業與宗教的豐碩遺產。以東寺為例,在1994年名列聯合國教科文組織世界遺產遺址,東寺同時也代表著真言宗佛教在日本的開端,以及蘊藏著豐富的古代木建築技藝與都是規劃的典範。僧侶空海在東寺講堂設立的立體曼陀羅,不但結合了手工佛像製作藝術的非物質遺產 / 建築遺址的物質遺產,也代表著宗教藝術、平面設計、信仰的跨文化交流。東寺得以幸運地在天災、政變與世界大戰後完整保留,其永續保育的價值,不言而喻。

AGENDA

"Digital media and technology has in recent years become a progressively functional platform to create and develop works that can unite, engage and produce a dialogue between artists and their audience. But even with awareness of technology continually expanding, new media art has only just begun to overlap with the mainstream art world because of its challenge to the marketplace, and its often dematerialized condition making it difficult to collect. This panel aims to provide a basic distinction between digital art and new media and address how the medium is defined by curators, artists and collectors. Panelists will discuss what it is that draws technology to an artist, and give an insight into understanding the mechanisms of the medium." - Art Central

 

當代數位媒體科技逐步成為藝術家與觀眾之間協作、整合、啟發與對話的功能性平臺。但既便科技意識持續發酵,新媒體藝術 (New Media Art) 因為市場考量,仍僅止於試圖與主流媒體藝術靠攏的初始階段,新媒體藝術非物質化的創作媒材亦令藏家怯步。本論壇旨在闡明數位藝術與新媒體藝術的不同,並著眼於策展人、藝術家及收藏家眼中的新媒體定位。本論壇將討論科技與藝術如何架接,並深入討論媒體機制。
