ABSTRACT

This article analyzes the experience of DMZ Peace Map making as an example of cultural contents. Existing cultural contents research has dealt with concepts and methodologies, or criticized cases. However, this article deals with both the planning and implementation of DMZ Peace Map. Analytical descriptions of the historical and realistic backgrounds, ideas and concepts, methods, contents and meanings, and usage plans surrounding the subject matter are described. This is meaningful not only for the study of the DMZ, but also for suggesting the direction and alternatives of cultural contents and public history using digital media. DMZ Peace Map is a cultural content implemented through a digital medium called Web GIS. It is a creative representation of facts based on a problem-conscious awareness of the present, an expansive reinterpretation of primary data, and multidisciplinary convergence research. The DMZ Peace Map shows the various paradoxes and possibilities of facts. Digital content based on facts creates a rift in facts, makes history re-perceived not only as the past but also as the future, and the synthesis and classification of facts enables complex thinking. Through this, the DMZ, which was erased and closed, is appropriated for the public and popular.
