Digital Mediation of Art and Culture – From Web to Augmented Reality
What are current data-based practices and strategies of “digital mediation of art and culture”? In how far are they inherently digital? And what are networked forms of learning from and about cultural data as well as co-creative knowledge generation afforded by different forms of digital media?
The paper will take the plenum on a comparative journey through data-based mediation practices and strategies, (re-)using cultural heritage sources in different modalities – from Web over mobile media to Augmented Reality. In all these digital mediation forms the term mediation is also understood as designing the “in-between”, the interface between visitor and cultural objects. Using the analytic lens of Software Studies (Manovich, 2001, 2013) the paper will introduce research results that show, how the digital mediation forms itself and especially its interfaces have evolved into a digital display for art and culture in their own right: from remediating analogue forms of mediation into the digital realm to the creation of disruptive new experiences based on cultural data.
