Responsible Extended Reality (XR) Workshop

Wednesday 6 March 2024
TU Delft Library
Prometheusplein 1
2628 ZC Delft
XR Zone

Extended Reality (XR) encompasses augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality, and is reshaping how users, scholars, and cultural heritage institutions engage with the world and interpret objects. Questions arise about the ethical considerations in digitizing objects, the right technology to respect an object's authenticity, data ownership, and the broader implications of making cultural heritage accessible in digital spaces. Moreover, prolonged immersion in these alternate realities has potential physical and psychological effects. This session, developed by Liselore Tissen (Leiden University & TU Delft) and John Walker (SURF), aims to delve into XR's multifaceted ethical and technological aspects. Participants will not only engage with the story of the Mixtec skull but will also have hands-on experiences with various types of cultural heritage through VR, ensuring a comprehensive and immersive exploration of the topic.
