4th Hyperheritage International Seminar
(International Conference)
Smart Heritage
2-5 May, 2017 | Arab American University - Jenin, Palestine

The term HyperHeritage covers every hybrid cultural heritage environment (augmented with digital information) that allows exploring new facet’s of cultural information perceiving and practicing. Massive development, and impressive uses, of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and immersive devices (Augmented and Virtual Realities) have allowed exploring new forms of Human Cultural-Heritage Information Communication. ICT has established new ways, often independent of space and time, to access, process and to deal with interconnected Cultural-Heritage Information and Devices.

New Human-to-Human “Meditaised” Communication Protocols, are inviting information designers to reconsider the Cultural-Hertitage Information environment. However, it is important to notice, that the idea of HyperHeritage doesn’t aim to question the Traditional Cultural Institutions, it suggests other ways of seeing and treating Cultural-Heritage Information growing, consuming and producing in an interconnected unlimited spaces. Thus, HyperHeritage, that refers to "Hyper Perception" of Cultural-Information, leads to consider a doubly exploratory adventure: on the first hand, to replaying / rediscover some of Human Perceptual and Operational Capabilities (in handling cultural information) and on the other hand, as consequence, to re-design (re-engineer) the Cultural-Heritage Information itself.

HIS.4 (Smart Heritage) addresses the issue of “Mediatised” Human Cultural-Information Communication following at least two angles: Augmented “Mediatised” Human Cultural Heritage Communication and New Cultural-Heritage Information Design
