Nora Morton's curator insight, April 22, 4:33 PM

Fascinating new ways to present narratives... "letting us experience stories in a visceral, multi-sensual, personal and participatory way."  "Clouds over Sidra" is one of the projects featured in the exhibit created by vrse tools.  This virtual reality project immerses the viewer into a Syrian refugee camp through the eyes of a 12 year old girl.  Although vrse tools are out of my capacity to navigate, I can only imagine how cool it would be to recreate historical events in a virtual reality to allow students to explore the past in such an intimate way.

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, March 23, 1:11 PM


Mike Jones:  "Long-standing tenets of narrative still hold, but if we’re going to live and work in a multiplatform world - where audiences are spread across many narrative forms, not conglomerated together around a dominant - then Writers may need to rethink their processes and even the definition of what they are and what they do..."

James Coombes's curator insight, March 24, 12:08 PM

"Technology has never changed what a Story is or what audiences expect of it. The commonality of Story between a stageplay, a novel, a film and a video game is much stronger than anything technology can throw at it."

Reimagining 'Reality' leads to Fluid Reality.

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, April 22, 3:12 PM


Robert Pratten:  "Stories are the way we make sense of the world. Our minds can’t deal with randomness and we see connections, causes and reasons even where there are none. Whether we are happy or sad, positive or negative, this is often the result of the story we construct – it’s the meaning we attribute to events and things that without human interpretation have no meaning. So powerful is story that the life we lead today is a result of the stories we told ourselves in the past.


We are entering an age of fluid reality."
