• The Second Death Of The Author? Immersive Book Forms Using Ar/Vr And Ai

Dare, Eleanor, 2018, Conference or Workshop, The Second Death Of The Author? Immersive Book Forms Using Ar/Vr And Ai at The Media Production Show, London, 12-13 June 2018.

Abstract or Description:

In the 1990s much was made of hypertext, it was heralded as a new form that would revolutionise our experience of reading, in particular, much was made of interactive storytelling, the idea that readers would take power from writers and define new forms of storytelling; this notion had a brief, vivid heyday, but soon fizzled out. Now, with AR/VR and AI, are we on the brink of a real transformation in our experience of storytelling, will the future really be one in which readers become storytellers as the book converges into headsets and mobile phones? Dr Eleanor Dare will discuss these possibilities, she will talk about her own research with AR/AI book forms as well as a new course at the Royal College of Art, MA Digital Direction, which seeks to nurture the disruptive storytellers and creative leaders of the future.
