Call for Artists
In order for the design and implementation of the interactive art-installation to be as open and high quality as possible, an open call for graduates of Schools of Fine Arts and similar schools or graduates of Architecture Schools was announced. This was an essential step for the project, as many renowned artists answered the call, resulting to the production of diverse and out-of-the-box artworks!
Call for Papers
ICT offers new opportunities to rethink and redesign the way Cultural Heritage is experienced, Archives are organized and Museums are deployed and managed. Participation, interpretation and connection on one hand and personalization, re-contextualization, interaction and immersion on the other, are key elements of the change that is occurring in cultural heritage assets and the institutions traditionally associated to them.
Big Data and Artificial Intelligence can be used to adapt and personalize museum experience whereas human-machine interaction methodologies and advanced immersive technologies allow the emulation and the augmentation of the physical world by creating a surrounding, immersive, multisensorial feeling. In addition, as ICT allows the integration of various layers of space, including smart physical spaces and virtual spaces, the museum is now able to transcend the physical limits of its enclosed rooms and its fixed locations and invite people to share augmented, animated, intense everyday experiences in the common, public spaces of the hybrid cities, where present and past can coexist.
PALIMPSEST Team launched a call with the aim to gather some of the most promising experiences and proposals of innovation through the use of digital technologies, in the Museum environment and the Cultural Heritage field. The objective was to identify new paths for the rediscovery and enhancement of new possibilities to relate to cultural heritage that can provide benefits in the social and economic sphere.
