The Laboratory for Experimental Museology (eM+) is a leading transdisciplinary initiative at the intersection of immersive visualization technologies, visual analytics, aesthetics and cultural (big) data. eM+ engages in research from scientific, artistic and humanistic perspectives and promotes post-cinematic multisensory engagement using experimental platforms (known as location-based entertainment). eM+ has 11 unique large-scale visualization systems combined with powerful sonic architectures that are benchmarks in the realms of virtual, augmented, mixed realities. These cluster-based 3D systems are deployed in major exhibitions and interactive installations at prestigious organizations throughout the world.

eM+ builds on 20 years of research and development at the pioneering laboratories of iCinema Research Centre for Cinematic Research (iCinema), Sydney; The Applied Laboratory for Interactive Visualisation and Embodiment (ALiVE), Hong Kong and; the Expanded Perception and Interaction (EPICentre), Sydney.
