5. DH in Korea
2
DH in Hong Kong’s 8 academic libraries
None of the UGC institutions has
a dedicated centre that supports
DH or digital scholarship
Ad hoc basis - it provides some
level of institutional support for
DH, but only if the need arises

Martial Arts Living Archive at City
University of Hong Kong (CityU)
4
Martial Arts Living Archive at CityU HK
It’s the first ever comprehensive and
precise documentation of Hong Kong’s
Kung Fu traditions.
"For the majority of styles, important
masters are still around, [but] they are
ageing. A lot of them are in their 60s,
70s and 80s. A few passed away in
the past year. There's an urgency to
do it now." (Hing Chao)
5
Traditional Documentation of Form
6
Why is it Important?
Different martial art styles/ schools make use of
various models of body mechanics which in the past
was mostly orally transmitted (master-to-disciple)
DATA CAPTURE TYPES
1. 3D motion data
2. Stereoscopic video (panoptic from six points of
view)
3. Panoramic video
4. Stills photography
5. HD high-speed video sequences
6. Spatial audio
7
Why is it Important?
Using high-definition and high-speed 3D
video capture of sequences, the activity
of annotation itself includes such physical
data for: speed, torque, torsion and force
(momentum and acceleration).
4D analysis of Kung Fu also includes time.
Archive provides benchmarks in the
formation of extensive analytics tools
that has been done with the Frankfurt
Ballet

What is Being Documented?
Captured for the archive using state-of-the-art 3D
motion capture technology developed by CityU’s
Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media
(ACIM).
All video and audio media is tagged along the time
code from the outset to enable a finely tuned search
among the huge datasets archived through various
data capture processes.
"Speed, torque, torsion and force can be captured as
physical data, not only for mere documentation but
also future scientific research." - Jeffrey Shaw, HK
CityU
10
City University of Hong Kong
Jeffrey Shaw, Chair Professor of Media Art
and Dean of the School of Creative Media
Leading figure in new media art since the
1960's in Europe
Documenting, representing, and re-
interpreting intangible cultural heritage
--> utilizing the technical resources at
CityU.
11
What About the Library’s Role?
The archive database is structured
on multiple media types and ingests
information based on the complete
lexicon of Hong Kong kung fu.
A controlled keyword vocabulary
(the Hong Kong martial arts
thesaurus) and item-level
descriptions define the fields for data
entry.

Hong Kong Memory Website has been handed
over to the Leisure and Cultural Services
Department, the Government of the Hong Kong
Special Administrative Region for continuous
maintenance and development.

Web Platform & Technology
—Technology was outsourced
● Developed by Beijing company TRS
Information Technology Limited
● Hardware solutions from IBM
—
16
Community Engagement Component
—School Memory Programme, to promote
the idea of “learning history by doing
history” to secondary school students, by
providing them training in collecting,
compiling, organizing and sharing school
memories
—
Ordinary citizens record and share their real
life history through digital technology by
providing a simple and user-friendly digital
tools and training workshops
17
Copyright Challenge
A key concern from the HK Government
Engaged a legal consultant to compile a set
of copyright guidelines, based on copyright
issues that may be encountered by the
project
—License agreement that allows the transfer
of copyrights from Hong Kong University
(HKU) to the Government

Memory Hunt in Kyoto, Japan
21
MemoryHunt
MemoryHunt is an app that enables users to
find places using photographs “overlayed” on
the viewfinder of the camera.
It was originally developed to find places
where old photographs were taken.
The best way to do this is to try to take
exactly the same picture. The place you take
the photo is close to the place where the
target photograph was taken. The app can
record the location into the metadata so that
it can share the photographs on the map.
22
Kyoto’s Memory Hunt
Research was carried out by Prof. Nishi
Yoshimi, and Prof. Yamamoto Hiroyuki
at Kyoto University
Photo metadata (such as latitude,
longitude, time) is recorded during
photo shoots
The app is a tool for recording new and
current locations and landscapes
23
Memory Hunt
24
Disaster Reconstruction
Records the change of landscape in
disaster affected areas. Overlay of
photographs with the current landscape to
capture details of change, while capturing
information of disaster areas
Photographic tool for recording the
reconstruction of the disaster areas
To shoot the same landscape and
immediately after the disaster landscape
with the camera is not easy, because the
alignment of the landscape
25
Disaster Reconstruction
1. Indonesia of Sumatra island,
Sumatra earthquake tsunami (the
Indian Ocean tsunami) is generated
in December 2004
2. March 11, 2011 Great East
Japan Earthquake
26
Disaster Reconstruction (Try Link)
27
DH in South Korea
28
Humanities departments in South Korea
have dealt with cutbacks or been converted
into a career-oriented ‘contents’
department
These measures are consequences of a pro-
business, conservative government agenda
‘The crisis of humanities’ involves not the
lack of funds ‒ as is the case in the United
States
Rather, it’s a “disregard for humanities &
liberal arts”

  • 8. Why is it Important? Using high-definition and high-speed 3D video capture of sequences, the activity of annotation itself includes such physical data for: speed, torque, torsion and force (momentum and acceleration). 4D analysis of Kung Fu also includes time. Archive provides benchmarks in the formation of extensive analytics tools that has been done with the Frankfurt Ballet 8

All video and audio media is tagged along the time code from the outset to enable a finely tuned search among the huge datasets archived through various data capture processes. "Speed, torque, torsion and force can be captured as physical data, not only for mere documentation but also future scientific research." - Jeffrey Shaw, HK CityU 10
