This presentation examines new paradigms for transforming cultural archives into embodied experiences. Using large-scale heterogeneous datasets of intangible and tangible heritage, the research described integrates groundbreaking work in virtual environment design, interactivity, information visualization, visual analytics and cultural imaging initiated at the Applied Laboratory for Interactive Visualization and Embodiment (ALiVE), City University of Hong Kong.
