Digitizing and archiving Seminar at Aberystwyth. 01st July 2013

CARIAD’s research assistant Leah Mc Laughlin joined Prof. Jeffrey Jones http://cardiff-school-of-art-and-design.org/staff/jeffreyjones/ and presented at the digitizing and archiving seminar at Aberystwyth yesterday http://www.aber.ac.uk/en/art/. Representatives from Bath Spa, Cardiff Met and Aberystwyth School of Art met to discuss the wide range of challenges and debates surrounding the digitizing and cataloguing of traditional archives, but in particular new media like moving-images, online platforms and social networks. The event sparked many debates regarding the interpretation of moving-images in research, the death of celluloid film and the philosophy of re-enactment on film. CARIAD are looking forward to more future collaborations with Moira Vincentelli Director of the world renowned Ceramic Archive in Aberystwyth http://www.ceramics-aberystwyth.com/, in order to facilitate ways of appraising the archive and developing ways of cataloguing and interpreting visual data.
