Most digital entertainment takes place on a screen where the object of the medium is to transport the audience into another world to allow for an escape. Mixed reality experiences are unique in their application of digital information over the real world, not allowing for escapism in the same way as the story being told has to take place in the world of the audience. This offers opportunities for different stories to be told in different ways, or for stories to be integrated into other mixed reality experiences in interesting ways.
This workshop will look at storytelling and mixed reality technology separately, before looking at how the two can combine. Workshop attendees will then have an opportunity to design their own
mixed reality storytelling experiences and present them to the rest of the workshop.
This workshop aims to provide participants with the following:
- An understanding of the role of storytelling in society and how it can be used in technology.
- Receive an overview the historic development and future trajectory of mixed reality technology.
- Experience in creating mixed reality stories.
