Film and Games Summit – The promise of the new – Immersion Revisited
“While immersion continues to be hailed as the promise for upcoming media formats and new technologies, it has a long history. Thus the concept of immersion can be linked to all kinds of media: being immersed in a book, a film or a game; and to a whole set of theoretical approaches and cultural discourses. It is an aesthetic and philosophical question, but also an inherently cognitive question.
This summit sheds light on particular processes of aesthetic reception at the intersection between story, mind, systems and interaction through the various media studies ranging from literature, film, games, and digital formats.“
