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 ninety exhibitions and installations for museums worldwide. In 2017, Kenderdine was appointed professor at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) where she has built the Laboratory for Experimental Museology (eM+), exploring the convergence of imaging technologies, immersive visualisation, digital aesthetics and cultural (big) data.

The Pavilions blend experimental curatorship and contemporary aesthetics with open science, digital humanism and emerging technologies.
