Everything you feel is real
Blending tangible experience and impossible stories to unearth tiny truths. How can we use immersive worlds to reimagine the world and our place in it ?
In this talk Kirsty will discuss the power of physical experiences in virtual spaces to shape perception. She will focus the talk on Anagram’s VR experience Goliath : Playing with Reality (2021), which brings together the sensory power of immersive theatre with recently available technology to playfully invite audiences into alternative worlds and a unique understanding of our own minds.
