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.


Dr. Kenderdine researches at the forefront of interactive and immersive experiences for museums and galleries. 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. She is the Visiting Associate Professor at City University of Hong Kong; Director, Centre for Innovation in Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (iGLAM); Director of Research, ALiVE; and is the head of Special Projects with Museum Victoria.
