Digital Humanities and graphic designers were linked in a graduate study to create prototypes. This prototype enables a user experience that provides digital conversations when visiting physical monuments. The concept launches a user into an augmented monument reality state.
In the new environment, users explore previous or new footprints and can create their personal imprint or conversation. Additional features offer user tools to make real-time collages from archived photographs, videos or voice-over files.
In addition, the Digital Humanities project investigated how E-readers can translate historical moments into events from written literature. As an emerging trend, Digital Humanities now use technology to curate online collections. My interest examined user interaction with large online data collections.
Users have a new way of searching and curating personal data. The result of Venn diagrams displays common relationships in broader terms, such as historical period, themes or national policy issues. Inherent within the system is a user notification system directing users to the hierarchy of data results.
