The (In)Tangible Heritage(s) conference welcomes artists, designers, filmmakers, architects and art historians engaged in the use of digital technologies, whether in the creation of artworks, the teaching of design practices or the study of art and cultural artefacts.
15-17th June, 2022
University of Kent
ABTRACTS DEADLINE: 30 MARCH 2022
The buildings, towns and cities we inhabit are physical entities created in the past, experienced in the present, and projected to inform the future. The same can be said of the artefacts we use daily: designed furniture in the home, the mobile devices in our hands, the vehicles we see on our streets. However, each of these places, buildings and products had, at their inception, social and cultural roles beyond their ‘object’ status.
They continue to have them today.
What we understand a designed object to be then, is a complex question of material and social import, and an intricate play of the tangible and intangible identities. Increasingly, it is also a question of hybrid experiences and overlaid histories. This conference addresses the range of issues connected to this scenario.
