Title: Postdigital Pasts:
Authors: Kenderdine, Sarah
Keywords: Digital Cultural Heritage
New Museology
Media Archaeology
Deep Mapping
Media Art
Media Art Histories
Issue Date: 1-Nov-2017
Abstract: As David Berry and Michael Dieter (2012) have described, postdigital refers not to life-after-digital but rather the ways in which computation has become ‘experiential, spatial and materialized; embedded and embodied’, part of the contested fabric of life. Postdigital pasts emerge from the ways digital cultural heritages are animated in the present and entangled within heritage discourse, new museology and beyond. Materializing these postdigital pasts, this lecture retraces a series of artistically-informed installation works exploring diverse themes including the cult of the replicant as a ‘post-original original’ (Davis 1995), intangible heritage as an archaeology of the body and, deep mapping as a navigational device where ‘everything is on the move’ (November 2009).

Description: Biography: Professor Dr. Sarah Kenderdine researches at the forefront of interactive and immersive experiences for galleries, libraries, archives and museums. Her internationally exhibited and critically acclaimed works amalgamate cultural heritage and new media in the fields of interactive cinema, augmented reality and embodied narrative. Most recently, Kenderdine was the founding director of the Expanded Perception and Interaction Centre (EPICentre) at UNSW Australia, where she pioneered new visualization frameworks for medicine, engineering and the arts. In 2017, she was appointed Professor of Digital Museology at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) where she is building a new laboratory to explore the convergence of aesthetic practice, visual analytics and cultural data.
