KEMDU (Knowledge Exchange Mobile Display Unit)
The KEMDU (Knowledge Exchange Mobile Unit) is an outcome of the Discourse Project and was initiated by Estelle Thompson. The project was awarded funding from the HEIF Knowledge Exchange & Innovation Fund.
Exploring interdisciplinary collaboration and creative response between subject specialists, the KEMDU is a bespoke, interactive and portable multimedia display unit, serving as a meeting place for exhibition and discourse. The KEMDU unit contains a projector, media player and headphones for digital or a/v material in a display.
The project was developed by Honorary Research Associates Richard Forbes-Hamilton and Rory McCartney through the Discourse Project led by Estelle Thompson. The unit stems from Richard and Rory’s research into the possibilities of creative interactions with specialist material within UCL Collections.
