As in the 21st Century the world develops a deeper understanding of heritage, digital technology is ever more present in our reading of the past. Hybrid Space Lab’s lecture Hybrid Heritage addresses how to best unlock the unique potentialities of this interdisciplinary and technological moment.
How to re-signify heritage and physical monuments with the help of creative visions and hybrid (combined physical and digital) tools? Addressing these issues the lecture Hybrid Heritage presents a series of Hybrid Space Lab’s projects researching and designing contemporary interpretations and further development of heritage under a multicultural perspective.
Next to integrating creative design research methods into the processing of heritage, Hybrid Heritage bolsters innovative ideas on (the future of) heritage in the Digital Age: Digitally supported co-creative processes potentially eliminate boundaries to engagement and visualization, fostering radical re-signification of physical monuments and heritage. Dynamic, digital, networked archives enable the integration of side-lined voices within polyphonic heritage (sites).
