CODE + : Cyber Archiving, Creative Coding, and Artificial Intelligence for the Digital Heritage Narratives of Asia
SIGGRAPH ASIA 2020 | Course | November 17th, 2020
The course aims to push the boundary of digital narrative by utilizing the cyber archiving, creative coding, and artificial intelligence.This course investigates and explores the integration between cultural heritage and digital conservation, specifically towards the objects, deities, and sites of China. Through the reflections of the Chinese cultural heritage under the global perspectives of Chinese history, the course raises the awareness of heritage conservation and critical heritage studies towards the origins and the transformations of China in the contemporary era. Academic readings and oral presentations revolving around the theme lectures enhance students’ senses of documentation and restoration by innovative digital techniques in China; Conservator presentations, field trips, gallery visits, and art projects enable students to communicate with practitioners in the field, and examine the values of Chinese cultural heritages under global perspective.

Prof. Chen Wu-Wei has served in the broadcast industry as the videographer, non-linear video editor as well as motion graphic designer and animator. Chen has also worked in New York, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Taiwan as the professional and educator. In recent years, Dr. Chen integrates the concepts of 3D visualization, interactive info-motion design, and digital sculpting into digital heritage content development. Dr. Chen hosts digital heritage forums at SIGGRAPH Asia 2016/2017 and invites interdisciplinary experts (museum contents, architecture, urban planning, curation, and aesthetics) for sharing. Chen's latest papers are accepted by CIPA (Ottawa) and DCH (Berlin).
In 2018, during the exhibition "Transference: Images and Archives of Dazu Rock Carvings" curated by Mr. Qin Zhen at the Sichuan Art Academy Museum, Dr. Chen demonstrates the web-based interactive installation of Counting Beads Avalokiteśvara of cave 125 (Beishan area of Dazu Rock Carvings, 960-1127 A.D.) in the form of point cloud visualization; In the same year, Chen also presents the digitization process to the audiences in New York during the “Virtual Journey: Chinese Buddhism Art and Architecture In the Digital Era ” exhibition curated by Ms. Jinyoung Jin at the Charles B. Wang Center; The author further collaborates with art historians and conservators to host Mellon Buddhist Workshop at the FreerSackler Museum in Washington D.C. to share the experiences and conservation/research concepts from the perspective of digital heritage. The smart heritage development of field research, digital documentation, data collection, exhibition, promotion and dissemination gets mature in the process. To push the boundary, further work can be done by utilizing the GIS mapping, AR mobile apps, and Geocinema to integrate the heritage data into more comprehensive digital narrative.
