thanks for helping us refocus the discussion although as you
say the discussion has been interesting and vigorous
I would to take your sentence:
"History and cultural heritage can become key elements from cultural,
historical, social as well as economic viewpoints, they can act as
observatories of issues which combine past, present and future,
fostering new economic and professional areas."
How in the medrim do we use the thinking about heritage to build a
around the medrim for the new digital communities that are now being
built ? How do we leave traces of what is happening so our descendents
will be able to draw on our contemporary knowledges ? how do we build
the new kinds of mechanisms necessary
for buulding new systems for digital culture heritage?
One of the simple things that Nina Czegledy has been advocating is
inter-generational communication. In physical space old people are
often physically separated from young people ( i was luch to grow up
with one of my grandmothers). In school systems we segregate people by
age- but how can one be apprenticed or mentored ? On line there is no
good physical reason for age segregation, but the social dynamics tend
to promote homophily.
Its interesting to note that in this discussion inter-generational
communication is alive and well: here are three people who have been
in the discussion:
Liliane Lijn (born 22 December 1939), is an American-born artist
who was the first woman artist to work with kinetic text (Poem
Machines), exploring both light and text as early as 1962. She has
lived in London since 1966.
Ken Friedman, (born September 19, 1949 in New London, Connecticut) was
a member of Fluxus, an international laboratory for experimental art,
architecture, design, and music. Friedman joined Fluxus in 1966 as the
youngest member of the classic Fluxus group.
Jasia Reichardt was born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1933. In the 1950s she
was editor of Art News and Review, a weekly arts magazine.[citation
needed] From 1963 to 1971 she was assistant director of the Institute
of Contemporary Arts in London. In 1968 she curated the Cybernetic
Serendipity exhibition at the ICA, and was editor of Cybernetic
serendipity: the computer and the arts, a special edition of Studio
International magazine, which was published at the same time. (
jasia you havent chimed in on this discussion.
And of course we have many emerging professionals on the list under
the age of 30-for instance two students doing phds with me
Yvan Tina is a PhD candidate at The University of Aix-Marseille and at
The University of Texas at Dallas where he is investigating the
possible convergences of artificial life and biotechnologies with the

worked for Sony Pictures Television International, National Public
Radio, and Mexico's Televisa, among others.
and others in mid career:
Claudine Dussollier studied Geography. She has had various working
experiences in the field of immigration, urban, social and cultural
I have a proposal- for the next week I suggest that only people older
than 60 years older
will have their comments posted.
Then the next week only people on YASMIN who are under 30.
And then the people on yasmin between the age of 30 and 60.
How do each of these generations view the question of cultural
heritage in the context
of mediterranean region digital culture ?
Si I propose for the next three weeks- we ask you to state your age
group at the beginning of your comment
and then we will approve the posts by generation !

> Hello Yasminers,
> thank you all for making this discussion very interesting - I hope that more people, both among the invited respondents and among the Yasmin members, will be involved. I know that some of them are participating to the "Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science" conference, in Corfù, http://avarts.ionio.gr/ttt/
> I'll go through all your posts - since May 15 until May 30 they are roughly 45! - and I'll try to make some kind of a digest on the many topics which have been raised. I'll post it later to Yasmin. Any help here is welcome :-)
> My suggestion now is to get back to the original discussion topic, which is:
> "Countries in the Mediterranean Rim, and more in general European countries, have a long history and heritage in art and culture, which can be shared and revamped through new disciplines, sciences and technologies. History and cultural heritage must go beyond the status of precious and extraordinary assets just considered in a logic of past preservation. They can be projected into the future fostering the "new", "innovation," promoting new projects and agreements, through arts, scientific disciplines and technologies. History and cultural heritage can become key elements from cultural, historical, social as well as economic viewpoints, they can act as observatories of issues which combine past, present and future, fostering new economic and professional areas."
> I know that among our invited respondents and Yasmin members there are artists who have been or are working in this field, for instance the very interesting work of Katerina Karoussos in Greece. I think it would be important to know some more about what artists in the Mediterranean regions are making in connecting history to science and technology.
> I am also thinking that, starting from this Yasmin discussion's topic, we could collect papers for a structured, formal and scientific publication that Yasmin could present as a survey/research on art/science issues in the Mediterranean rim. The eBook format (PDF, epub) would be perfect for this project. What do you think about? Is anybody interested in helping?
> But now let's go back to the discussion again! I know it is just poor text, but despite all the right limitations you pointed out - language, structures, technology biases, and so on - it is anyway a medium which allows us to match, share and discuss different viewpoints, attitudes, activities, ideas, visions, cultures. ;-)
