Daniel Bacchus
Approaching Presence in VR

Daniel’s presentation will critically examine current research undertaken from a variety of disciplines that attempts to define and measure a sense of presence in virtual environments using virtual reality and multi-sensory technologies.

He will suggest relevant philosophical perspectives on the subject, highlighting alternative approaches and the difficulties in defining an invisible, intangible and elusive individual sense of presence.

Daniel will suggest how virtual reality platforms could be used to contribute to a discussion on the creation of presence, using unique experiences themselves to draw out a sense that consistently evades language.
