The digital era has witnessed a significant transformation in the accessibility and availability of cultural content in various formats, encompassing a wide range of art forms such as visual arts, cinema, literature, music, photography, and architecture. This shift from analogue to digital, referred to as the “grande conversion” by Milad Doueihi, continues to have a profound impact on our engagement with these creative expressions. By approaching this transition from the perspective of users’ expectations and objectives, considering their perceptions and abilities, we gain insights to navigate these changes effectively. This understanding enables us to develop and critically reflect on innovative interface processes that facilitate the emergence of new practices and experiences.

Spinning off the new book Les Devenirs numériques des patrimoines (The Digital Futures of Heritage), this event carefully curated a series of talks drawing on a variety of disciplinary perspectives and examples, showcasing the progress and advantages of working with the ever-changing technologies.
