Artefact emotions are ‘non-empathetic’ and occur in response to sensory pleasures such as the appearance of the actors, costumes, scenery, and special effects.

 

If you are working with any kind of story telling this is very interesting reading. Click for full article.

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


This is a two part blog series ...


1. Transmedia stories and games explained:  "Opportunity abounds in the area of ‘transmedia projects’, or stories and games that span more than one medium or artform."

Do You Go Both Ways?

Do You Go Both Ways? | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
