Contemporary design practice on meta-interpretation through experimental converging practices of sounds, images and data

SU, Pei-hsuan ;


The digital representation becomes the dominant form in the modern era, because of its appealing characteristics, such as variability, transcoding, and interaction in relation to multi-ple professions and disciplines. The invention of digital devices and contents has revolution-ized the quality of sound, image, and data, the way in which they are contemplated, and the forms of art that produce activities and aesthetics concepts. The reproduction leads to the hyperreal scenes at the exhibition spaces of Sun Yun-Suan Memorial Museum in Taipei where sounds and images are produced, copied and stimulated in a way that mimetic cannot be told apart from the original data. Through bringing together its curators, historians, scholars, engineers, and design experts in data transcoding, the museum plays a role of the integration of exper-tise in creating new exhibition experiences and aesthetics, which do help visitors to realize the significance of diverse elements of converging sounds, images and data in relation to its cul-tural-heritage representation.
