Atlas V and Archer’s Mark, the creative forces behind award-winning VR experiences Vestige and Notes on Blindness, discuss how the use of personal non-fiction narratives in VR can help audiences re-engage with challenging emotional, social and cognitive issues through the use of new technology. Now partnering with Princeton’s Program on Science and Global Security, the team will explore how these techniques can be used to reenergize the public debate on the threats posed by nuclear weapons in the twenty-first century.
