Repercussions: A Serious Games and Immersive Journalism Exhibit

November 15, 2012 - November 17, 2012, 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. (3:00 closing on Saturday)

USC School of Cinematic Arts Main Gallery

The Media Arts + Practice Program in the School of Cinematic Arts presents new work by doctoral students Karl Baumann, Adam Liszkiewicz and Nonny de la Peña in a show titled Repercussions: A Serious Games and Immersive Journalism Exhibit.

The show features Hunger in Los Angeles, a project that is a form of experiential journalism offering a fully immersive experience of news reporting. Using Unity 3D, a body-tracking motion capture system, and virtual reality goggles, coupled with live audio collected during a dramatic incident at a local food bank, the project recreates an eyewitness account of a crisis on a food-bank line at the First Unitarian Church in Los Angeles.

The show also features four new experimental game projects, offering participants the chance to explore the philosophical meanings of play and gaming through the design of the games themselves.

The exhibit will be open to visitors on Thursday and Friday,  November 15 and 16,  from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Saturday, November 17, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. The exhibit is located in the USC School of Cinematic Arts Gallery.
