Virtual Reality

Immersive Journalism: Nonny de la Peña

Nonny de la Peña, founder of Emblematic Group, uses digital reality technologies to tell important stories both fictional and news-based that create intense, empathic engagement on the part of viewers. Called the Godmother of Virtual Reality by Engadget and The Guardian, she was also named by Fast Company “One of the People Who Made the World More Creative.”

Experience 5 different virtual reality experiences—including a one man’s time in solitary confinement, a harrowing scene of domestic violence, and the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin—from 3–7:30 p.m. in the Annex before the program.
