GuestXR conflict resolution use case presented during a special exhibition at the Tel-Aviv University
The GuestXR project has been part of the Special Exhibition: Empathy and Embodiment in Virtual Reality, featuring projects that exploit the potential of Virtual Reality to elicit presence and empathy through immersion. This event was held on March 16th at the Genia Schreiber University Art Gallery of the Tel-Aviv University.
Esen Küçüktütüncü, PhD candidate at the Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona, showcased the GuestXR use case on conflict resolution. In this application, attendees could get involved in an argument in pairs regarding the impact that travelling by plane has on climate change. In the application each participant embodies the other and tries to see the world through their perspective.
Apart from this application, the GuestXR project works on three other use cases in Virtual Reality environments: a social application for hearing-impaired participants, a game to examine behavioural changes towards climate change and an innovative experiment that will be selected from the project’s public Open Call.
The exhibition also included artistic and experimental works created by other international scholars and artists and students from the Digital Media Track at Tel-Aviv University and Reichman University.
The special exhibition has been part of the Empathies, Brains and the Moving Image, a research workshop supported by the Israel Science Foundation.
