VR Salon: Stories We Sell - MUTEK_IMG 2018
"Story and narrative are the code for humanity's operating system." — Kamal Sinclair, Making a New Reality
We are the stories we tell ourselves. And yet, the stories that frame our identities have largely been told by a select few. This panel examines perspective in VR and which codes are embedded in the way these stories are told. A constellation of all star artists and VR creators from diverse and backgrounds address the question of who creates content and who and how we intake content in the era of empathy VR. Together, they argue that, by breaking open the codes of how we understand story, we can expand the potential of VR to bear witness, to establish a common language, and to reinterpret our present-day humanity.
