Stage: May 6, 16:20 - 17:10
Fireside Chat: Lost in Immersion
Jan-Keno Janssen (Heise), Kathrin Passig (Writer and Journalist). Introduction: Lauren Moffatt
Reality is what we experience. Or merely a construct made of language and symbols? How unsettling can it be to experience a different, parallel reality? Does such an experience expand how we perceive the world or is it shaken by such experiences? What does the exchange of one reality for another equally convincing one say about how we experience either of them? And why does that frighten so many people?
This panel goes deep into the question of what is real and what is perceived, and reality versus risk. They will show what processes and issues have already been dealt with on stages, and what questions have yet to be answered.
