A digital artwork expression language (DAEL)
Smith, Robert, Pham, Binh L., & Choudhury, Sharmin (2007) A digital artwork expression language (DAEL). In Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications, August 20 – 22, 2007, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.
To provide effective representation, search and retrieval of digital artworks, their semantics, context and symbolism should be considered. Existing metadata schemas were designed for other specific purposes and are too cumbersome to be modified to express these abstract concepts of digital artworks. We have designed a new metadata wrapper schema suitable for digital artworks and a Digital Artwork Expression Language (DAEL) based on this schema. This paper focuses on the requirements and features of DAEL, and how it can be used to express basic metadata as well as to generate more complex and abstract metadata via a Transformation Engine. A use case is presented to illustrate the usefulness of this language.
