Q: Are you real in a virtual space?
Exploring what is means to have a body across realities.
For our last Q: Series of the year, we will be exploring the concept of being in virtual space, and the nature of identity within these spaces. How do our own perceptions, experiences and situations influence the scope in which we formulate our own truths and reality, in real or virtual space?
Join our two speakers as we chat about what it means to consider the nature of embodied digital presence as well as unpack the ethical considerations in the virtual world.
