Futuna Lecture Series 2017: Sarah Kenderdine
Architecture for the Senses: Cultural Heritage in the Age of Experience
Professor Sarah Kenderdine will present a lecture that covers her research and practice which sits in 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 in the realms of interactive cinema, augmented reality and embodied narrative. She is considered a pioneer in the fields of digital heritage, digital humanities and big data visualisation and is a regular keynote speaker at related forums internationally including the World Economic Forum. Her laboratories work on the application of high fidelity data acquisition technologies, new virtual environment design (portable and permanent installations), computer graphics, data mining, high-speed networking, visual and sonic analytics and knowledge visualization—to reframe engagement with tangible and intangible heritage. Her virtual environments and applications are also increasingly adopted by the sciences to provide solutions for research in the era of big data.
