An Exhibition of New Narrative Experiences
Sensory Stories: An Exhibition of New Narrative Experiences reveals how an emerging group of artists and companies are using innovative digital techniques to change the way audiences experience storytelling. Conceived and organized by the Future of StoryTelling (FoST), an annual summit produced by Melcher Media, Sensory Stories invites visitors to participate in narratives that merge traditional storytelling with groundbreaking new technologies, incorporating full-body immersion, and interaction that includes sight, hearing, touch, and even smell.
The exhibit, which includes virtual-reality experiences, interactive films, participatory installations, and new touch-responsive interfaces, opens on April 18, 2015 at the Museum of the Moving Image and will be on view through July 26, 2015. In August 2015, the exhibit will travel to the acclaimed Phi Centre in Montreal, Canada, until mid-September.
Sensory Stories includes premieres of the fully immersive, virtual-reality bird-flight simulator, Birdly NYC; an interactive film from Google Creative Lab for the Google Cube; the first oBook, a platform that expands literature into the dimension of scent; and acclaimed work from Chris Milk, Vincent Morisett, The Daniels, the National Film Board of Canada, and other pioneers in new storytelling technologies.
