Bio:


  • ISEA2015

    Kate Hennessy, Assistant Professor, School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University, Canada. I am a cultural anthropologist with a PhD from the University of British Columbia (Anthropology). As the director of the Making Culture Lab at SIAT, my research explores the role of digital technology in the documentation and safeguarding of cultural heritage, and the mediation of culture, history, objects, and subjects in new forms. My video and multimedia works investigate documentary methodologies to address Indigenous and settler histories of place and space. Current projects include the collaborative production of virtual museum exhibits with Aboriginal communities in Canada; the study of new digital museum networks and their effects; ethnographic research on the implementation of large scale urban screens in public space; and as a founding member of the Ethnographic Terminalia curatorial collective, the intersections of anthropology and contemporary art practices.
