Immersive Storytelling for Documentary Narratives

How AR and VR is changing narration

How is documentary storytelling changing through 'new' technologies? AR and VR in particular are changing the way stories are told and, above all, how they are received and experienced. We would like to introduce you to the projects LediZ and Loving Ones, which use these techniques. Each has its own dramaturgy and takes a clear position on why and for what purpose the chosen medium is the right one for the story to be told. The projects will be used to look at what opportunities new techniques offer us to make stories come alive and where their limits and risks lie.

The AR exhibition Loving Ones which is based on based on an idea by documentary director Biljana Garvanlieva will be shown during DOK.fest München at the Karin Wimmer Gallery. Besides that you can visit the virtual exhibition space here.
