The panel “Sensory Storytelling in XR”  will see contributions by four Swiss XR professionals with backgrounds spanning from dance, to illustration, film and academia. Immersive narratives have the unique potential to integrate our senses. In virtual, spatial experiences, stories may unfold following viewers’ movements, gaze, or voice. Senses trigger various cues to weave personalized plots, giving a sense of co-creative agency to the experience’s participant. Discussing how sensory storytelling influences the creative process will be the focus of this panel discussion.
