The primitive space of cinematic VR opens up vital questions regarding how much this new mode can draw from established cinematic paradigms, such as linear narrative progression, techniques of montage, and emotional engagement via identification with diegetic characters. However, early scholarship in the field of virtual reality has also seen a lack of political or ethical engagement as one of the key issues in the field. This paper seeks to examine VR’s potential as a medium of ethical experience. Drawing on Robert Sinnerbrink’s work on the cinema-ethics relationship, this paper also utilises the concept of Chaudhuri and Finn’s ‘open-image’ to expand ethical experience beyond an intellectual consideration of moral or ethical dilemmas, an extension which examines how images can affect us in a multimodal sense: cognitively, but also emotionally, corporeally, and sensorially.
Adam Daniel is the SSSN University Representative and a Ph.D. candidate at Western Sydney University. He is a member of the Writing and Society Research Centre. His thesis investigates the modern evolution of the horror film form, with a focus on the intersection of embodied spectatorship, technology and new media, and Deleuzian philosophy.
Refreshments will be served during the seminar. All are welcome.
