CHeriScape conference V : Landscape in Imagination and the Virtual Future

February 5, 2016

Conference

fromdu 14 June 2016 toau 16 June 2016

Organized by:Organisé par :
Cultural Heritage in Landscape (CHeriScape), United Kingdom

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Newcastle, United Kingdom

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
The final CHeriScape conference will look forwards – and inwards into imagination. The mental landscapes we inhabit are increasingly digital as well as remembered; new media is changing how people interact and even how they think, perhaps in a way similar to how landscape and heritage governed lives in the past. This digital way of perceiving landscapes is just another turn to the ELC definition of landscape as areas ‘perceived by people’. Perhaps it narrows ‘real world’ experience, but it also expands and stretches horizons. Landscape is no longer, if it ever was, only the local, the seen or walked/worked in; people ‘possess’ distant landscapes that are nevertheless familiar, and never more easily than through ‘new’ virtual media. These still-emergent technologies could enable increased democratic engagement with landscape heritage and with landscape futures. Our concluding conference will thus explore how futures that grow from the past can be explored and imagined through new forms of heritage and landscape representations, and thus how present and future landscapes will be shaped and constructed.
