Issues of Distance in Digital Art History: A ResearchSpace for Art History
14 January, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
“INHA Digital Mondays” cycle
A new overarching distance is created between the artwork and its representation in the digital space. Technology affects and obscures the way we see art and all its worldly connections making scholars sceptical of digital methods.
Could technology be used to continuously capture our changing understanding of art works and the reasoning behind it? ResearchSpace is a digital platform that adapts Semantic Web technology to provide a connected and interdisciplinary way of thinking.
In this presentation, we demonstrate how different art history research practices can be represented within this expressive digital system that supports the presentation of multiple interpretations and structured arguments. A system that works with, and in the space between, narrative and data.
