Digital Collections and Research is a project funded by FAPESP in the call LinCar. It aims at developing methodologies and a theoretical, conceptual repertoire for museum collections and digital documents through the conceptualization and prototyping of accessible and economically sustainable interfaces.
- Cataloging thought from the notion of Social Documentation (entangled objects)
- Management thought from the notion of developing Generative AI systems
- Access thought from the elaboration of Digital Curation systems
For that, it starts from three natural-digital collections: FAUUSP (architecture, urbanism and design); MAC-USP (net art, NFTart, video art); FILE (net art, video games, interactive and immersive installations, computer graphics, etc.) and has the following guidelines:
- Alignment with the contemporary debate on archives, oriented towards multiplicity and diversity
- It presupposes the digitization of culture as a structuring element of contemporary society
- It proposes to think about instances of production, circulation, storage and access
- Part of an easy-to-implement, free and open registration and publication platform (Tainacan)
- It intends to be an innovative project, based on semantic networks and analysis with AI resources
- Production of a transdisciplinary theoretical and conceptual framework that underlies the methods to be developed
- Harmonize dynamic organization of cultural content and editorial intervention in automation systems
- Thinking about cataloging documentation to be done
- Visualize connections between internal layers of files
The team comprises researchers who have been working and facing problems in this area for over a decade, within the scope of research, production, and circulation of digital objects, in the arts, architecture, and design.
