Adventures in Embodiment: Panoramic, Panoptic & Hemispheric Immersion
Sarah Kenderdine

This workshop invites attendees to explore and evaluate a series of cultural heritage experiences developed for nine large-scale digital immersive, interactive, visualization systems. Dr. Sarah Kenderdine is Director of Research at the Applied Laboratory for Interactive Visualization and Embodiment (ALiVE) an interdisciplinary research initiative, City University of Hong Kong. She will introduce and describe the content production for both panoramic, panoptic, hemispheric, linear and augmented viewing paradigms including:  

- Interactive 3D panoramic 360-degree and wide screen displays (PLACE; AVIE; CLOUD) 

- Hemispherical domes (Dome; iDome) 

- Panoptic hexagonal and octagonal viewing systems (Re-Actor; The Virtual Room) 

- Linear navigators 

- Augmented reality 

These platforms offer new paradigms for creating access to cultural heritage archives as embodied museum experiences.

 Examples discussed will include: 

1. Pure Land: Inside the Mogao Grottoes at Dunhuang (2012), a project in collaboration with the Dunhuang Academy has been described as “the exhibition experience of the future” by Julian Raby, director of the Smithsonian’s Freer & Sacker galleries. Philip Kennicott for the Washington Post (Nov 30, 2012) wrote, “. . . at last we have a virtual reality system that is worthy of inclusion in a museum devoted to the real stuff of art.” <http://alive.scm.cityu.edu.hk/projects/alive/pure-land-inside-the-mogao-grottoes-at-dunhuang-2012/> 

2. ECLOUD WW1 (2012), a 3D interactive archive unleashes the potential of Internet data for situated museums experiences using the crowd-sourced data from Europeana’s 1914-1918 projects <http://alive.scm.cityu.edu.hk/projects/alive/ecloud-2012/> 

3. PLACE-Hampi (2006) and the Museum at Kaladham (2012) recently received the International Council of Museums (Australia) Award 2013 for International relations. A PDF description of the works 


4. Museum Victoria’s WILD panoramic navigators received the MUSE award in 2010 < http://museumvictoria.com.au/melbournemuseum/discoverycentre/wild/virtual-exhibition/>; and the 360-degree 3D system showing Dynamic Earth received the MUSE Award 2011 < http://museumvictoria.com.au/about/media-centre/media-releases/archive/museum-victoria-wins-gold-in-houston/>. 

Participants will learn how to work with scientific, natural and cultural collections, archaeological documentation, panoramic photographic and video recordings, ambisonic acoustic data, high resolution optical scans and web-based archives—to create transformative museum experiences.
