WORK, LIFE AND ETHICS

Physical and virtual worlds are more linked than ever before. Slowly but steadily, immersive technologies are becoming part of everyday life. This raises ethical questions, while a large quantity of data is used and shared everyday. What does privacy mean when your surroundings are scanned and biometric surveillance is needed for the tech to work properly? How do immersive technologies help us to create a safer, more diverse and prosperous life?

Immersive technologies are everywhere in the arts. In museums, cinema, gaming, dance, theater. Artists are pushing storytelling forward by finding and creating new ways to tell their stories. This year we are diving into dance, into social VR as a way to unlock the potential of cultural heritage, new business models for creators and storytelling. Because telling stories is what defines us, what helps us understand each other, what makes us human.
