Heritage as a Form of Digital Assemblage: An Analysis of a Cultural Heritage Lab

Cansu Nur Simsek and Atanur Andic, University of Texas at Dallas

13 May 2021

 

This presentation analyses the lab series ‘Rethinking Heritage: A 3D Collage Workshop’, an exercise that critically explores and questions the techno-cultural politics behind what heritage is through an experimental investigation of the dichotomy of cultural and personal valued objects. The lab project demonstrates how the act of critical making can create spaces for active engagement which may influence the social construction of what constitutes a collective appreciation of objects.

 

This presentation was delivered at the (en)coding Heritage Seminar Series, which brought together researchers working at the cutting edge of digital technologies, humanities and heritage science. The session was dedicated to Digital Reconstructions and Reactions. The full programme can be found here

 

Organised and chaired by Dr Lia Costiner (University of Oxford) and Dr Leonardo Impett (Durham University) for the Oxford (en)coding Heritage Network.
