Evolutionary Archive Structures - lecture annotation

starší poznámka

Demands on archives accesibility for networked research and participative entertainment make the archives evolve from simple database and hypertext forms to open living structures. Content is recharged with high level of interconnected context creating new cultural values. This new paradigm makes us think about three layers in archives. The videographic timespace as a basis, social networking layer adding tools for communication and collaboration and the layer of personal knowledge management. The living archives allow different user behaviors and the emergent knowledge finds natural environment at the same place where the research is under way. Public and interdisciplinary archives raise the question about how we think and organize the world aroud us. Taxonomies in archives are subject to specialization, socio-cultural environment and historical epoch. Seemingly fixed, taxonomies are rapidly expanding and changing in time and are used differently depending on given community, leading to possible unreachable or politically or economically rejected content. The top of the archive iceberg is the point where different media are meeting or clashing, where the different media languages encounter - the interface. Dependent on specialization, people anticipation and experience, trends and styles, the interface remediates and interpretes the content and is our only way into the archive space. The formal language of computer interfaces should correspond to the languages of former media it contains. Media take the forms and modes of archives, archives are becoming new communication media.
