A ROOM OF ONE’S OWN: novel interactions and contextual storytelling in virtual spaces.

Date/Time: Tues, Feb 21, 9-10am China time
Zoom ID: 93375892386
Speaker: RAY LC. Assistant Professor of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong

Virtual environments provide ways to intervene in the storytelling process, both by showing the context in which the narrative takes place and by applying interactions that go beyond the physical world to model mental conceptions. This talk describes a body of research in art, design, and human-computer research focused on understanding new interactions with the VR paradigm in both naturalistic and created environments, applied to storytelling for marginalized groups, sub culture communities, and artistic applications.



RAY LC creates speculative narratives in diverse media about the way humans adapt to technologies. His practice creates interaction and narrative environments for building bonds between humans and machines. He takes perspectives from his own research in neuroscience (Nature, J. Neurosci) and HCI (CHI, DIS, HRI) in his artistic practice, with exhibitions at BankArt, New York Hall of Science, Ars Electronica Linz, Saari Residency, New Museum, NeurIPS, Angewandte Festival, Osage Gallery, Elektron Tallinn, Elektra Montreal, Videotage, Goethe Institute, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Science Gallery Detroit, IEEE VISAP, SIGGRAPH Asia, Kyoto Design Lab. RAY founded the Studio for Narrative Spaces:
