VR FEST MX 2018: Creating Empathy in VR

Mexico City, Mexico

What are the strategies VR creators have to create empathic states? In her talk “Creating Empathy in VR” in Mexico City, Cloudred’s Illya Szilak argues that VR is not an “Empathy Machine” but rather a tool that creators can use to activate the visitor. Through the thoughtful use of scale, movement, sound, camera position, and interactivity, we have an opportunity to enable visitors to connect emotionally with stories.
