Computational Museology: Interfaces to Cultural (big) Data

Computational museology is a scaffold that unites machine intelligence with data curation, ontology with visualization, and communities of publics and practitioners with embodied participation through immersive interfaces. Research into computational museology at the Laboratory for Experimental Museology (eM+) reaches beyond object-oriented curation to blend experimental curatorship with contemporary aesthetics, digital humanism and emerging technologies. This lecture explores key themes from the laboratory at the forefront of immersive visualization including: interactive archives and emergent narrative; deep mapping and carto-criticism; deep fakes and blockchain sovereignties; embodied knowledge systems and; performative interfaces.

Professor Sarah Kenderdine leads a team of software engineers, artists, and curators, at the forefront of interactive and immersive experiences for galleries, libraries, archives and museums. She has created over 90 exhibitions and installations for museums worldwide. In 2017, Sarah was appointed professor at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland where she has built the Laboratory for Experimental Museology (eM+), exploring the convergence of imaging technologies, immersive visualisation, digital aesthetics and cultural (big) data. Sarah is the inaugural director and lead curator of EPFL Pavilions, an art/science initiative located in a seminal Kengo Kumar building. In 2020 and 2022, she was named in the Museum Influencer List 2020 – The Power 10 by Blooloop and, Switzerland’s Top 100 Digital Shapers by Bilanz in 2020 and 2021. In 2021, Sarah was appointed corresponding fellow of The British Academy (FBA).
