Promoting Culture, Society and Innovation
We celebrated #MuseumWeek2022 with a series of SPICE case studies related to this year’s theme of ‘culture, society and innovation’.
Did you miss them? Here’s a look at how SPICE’s case studies contributed.
Language-based approaches to emotion categorization
“A complementary account to emotion extraction and classification in #culturalheritage based on the Plutchik’s theory” by Andrea Bolioli, Alessio Bosca, Rossana Damiano, Antonio Lieto and Manuel Striani. This paper presents a combined approach to knowledge-based emotion attribution and classification of cultural items employed in the H2020 project SPICE. In particular, we show a preliminary experimentation conducted on a selection of items contributed by the GAM Museum in Turin (Galleria di Arte Moderna).
The value of slow looking
As part of a recent collaboration, members of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland immersed themselves in art and experienced a world completely removed from work. Doctors explored the IMMA Collection through the eyes of chronically ill teenagers from @HeliumArts Youth Advisory Group, who curated their own response to the Queer Embodiment exhibition, with a SPICE Citizen Curation script titled ‘Uncomfortably Beautiful’, which shared their perspectives on works by Alice Maher and other artists.
