One of the reasons we love augmented reality is that as a new form of media it creates a whole new world of possibilities for telling stories. It’s an entirely new medium of experience, and it requires a different perspective when approaching story telling.
Telling stories with augmented reality is the forte of designer, researcher and artist Helen Papagiannis. After all, her Twitter handle is @ARstories and she authors the blog Augmented Stories. Helen is currently completing her Ph.D. in at York University in Toronto where she is a Senior Research Associate at the Augmented Reality Lab. Her presentations on AR Storytelling have been well received, even making Gary Hayes’ Top Ten AR & Gamified Life Talks list.
In May, Helen presented at Augmented Reality Event 2011 in Santa Clara, California, and we’ve got video of it for you today. So check out Helen’s talk below, and see her Slideshare page to follow the slides.
