If you missed my talk on Expanded Approaches to Empathy in VR, you can see it here. Many thanks to Michael DeBartolo, Professor Francisco Julian Martinez Cano for fascinating discussion related to using space, movement, gesture as tools for promoting empathy, intimacy and connection. We go deep into the making of Queerskins: ARK VR as I argue for the need for live experimentation in scripting and designing impactful narrative and moving beyond perspective taking. Thanks to Zach Milonas for expert videography. Wonderful!
