Digital Cultural Heritage & Multimedia in Museums—The Chinese View
- Jiyun (Jade) Park, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR (Nationality: South Korea)
Since 2016, 42 museums in 9 cities had been visited research about hyper/multimedia applications with cultural topics and educational purposes. The research has been conducted not only in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan but also in Singapore and Seoul so that the study covers more Asian countries. Contents of mobile applications, hypermedia and multimedia kiosks, interactive media, QR codes, video projections and CD-ROMs have been collected. Collected data have been analysed to examine the diversity of the visual grammar and information architecture of the multimedia applications.
Preparing Digital Media for Online Access at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
- Jean Moylan, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, USA
Jean Moylan, a 2018-19 National Digital Stewardship Residency for Art Information fellow at the Guggenheim, will present on her efforts to improve the Museum's institution-wide preservation and access infrastructures for all digital audiovisual assets, with a specific focus on preparing backlogged archival video assets for online access via YouTube and other social media channels.
Style Revolution: Collaboration and Experimentation in Art Historical Digital Humanities within the University Setting
- Jodi Mikesell, Columbia University, USA
The work of the Style Revolution project uses the methods of minimal computing to present web-based art historical research of the Journal des dames et des modes, a celebrated 18th-century publication of french post-revolution fashion plates. The work seeks to guide the viewer to a deeper, more meaningful understanding of how a seemingly inconsequential fad within fashion can create a paradigm shift in societal conceptions of consumer culture and its importance in material representations of our modern day identity. At the same time, our presentation discusses how we are modeling collaborative work in the beginner digital humanities classroom to achieve almost complete control of an online exhibit of public import
