Introducing Sarah Kenderdine
Professor Sarah Kenderdine researches at the forefront of interactive and immersive experiences for galleries, libraries, archives and museums. In widely exhibited installation works she has amalgamated cultural heritage with new media art practice, especially in the realms of interactive cinema, augmented reality and embodied narrative.
Museums in the Age of Experience - In the Age of Experience, digital cultural heritage demands new prosthetic architectures for the production and sharing of archival resources, emphasising personal affective engagement with cultural memory. Immersive visualisation technologies in combination of high-fidelity digital cultural data, give us fresh opportunities for inhabiting places, augmenting objects and sculpting cultural collections. This presentation will explore both creating and translating the digital record into narratives of engagement by which museum visitors virtually re-embody and re-curate the archive. This ‘embodied museography’ is defined by attributes of immersion, interaction and, participation and necessarily asks us to re-examine our notions of aura, authenticity and authorship.
