Verena Henn is Head of Research & Innovation at isoLABS, the R&D arm of award-winning digital design studio ISO. Here she and her team explore the creative application of immersive and interactive technologies and how they can shape new audience behaviours. isoLABS works with artists, cultural organisations, academics and partners from the creative industries on research-led projects. They also create proof of concept demos and prototypes to illustrate new opportunities or to de-risk concepts which are dependent on emergent technologies.
Verena originally joined ISO via a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the University of the West of Scotland with the objective to introduce a research-led philosophy that can translate into tangible commercial returns and strategic change within the studio. Prior to her posting at ISO, Verena worked as a creative technologist in Germany and Hong Kong and has extensive experience in developing interactive installations for events, trade shows and permanent exhibitions.
