Digital Japan

The Digital Japan research stream brings together technical innovations in Japanese art and design with use of digital technology to deepen our understanding of Japanese arts and cultures. Current research on Japan is ‘digital’ in three key areas, which together provide an overview of a fast-developing field. 

  1. Documentation Creating digital reproductions of cultural heritage in Japan. By doing so, we connect thought, technique, and society, making links from the past to present and future.
  2. Digital Learning Digital learning enables us to share knowledge, experience and interaction among students and teachers, both in Norwich, and domestically and internationally.
  3. Collective Intelligence Setting up a digital space for gathering information. This contributes to a shift in how knowledge is held and processed, from the individual to the collective.
