A perspective on systems design in the digitisation of Intangible Cultural Heritage

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewTidsskriftartikel

Abstrakt

My ambition for this shorter article is to add to an earlier discussion (see Rodil and Rehm, 2015) about the interplay of digital systems and the digitisation of intangible heritage. In particular, I wish to sketch some conceptualisations of what and how we can look at the digital systems (I refer to these as artefacts) as having certain inscribed perspectives. Meanwhile, providing some related literature, I show one possible road out of the complexity (with a co-responsible design known as Participatory Design), which emerges when certain cultures design and build artifacts together with the purpose of containing other cultures’ intangible heritage. At the end I provide some questions for reflection, if one is considering digitising intangible heritage.
