Immersive experience, or sparkling reality?
To me, immersive experience design is the art of extracting and displaying a more magical version of what’s already there. I specialize in highlighting aspects of consensus reality’s absurd shadow self and creating an environment for audiences to explore and reflect on those aspects. Or I could just design you a fun scavenger hunt. Either way.
My areas of expertise include:
- Immersive narrative design: Creating fictional worlds where participants can play, with story-driven guardrails.
- Immersive instructional design: Designing and implementing interactive experiences that encourage participants to think, learn, and consider new concepts.
- Site-specific experience design: Using the existing environment to create magic.
