Between imposter syndrome, new headsets, discontinued headsets, and a slew of technical challenges, three XR artists share how they navigate through a sea of constant change and uncertainty. What drives them to create is staying grounded in their WHYs: their passion for storytelling, sharing with others, and love for their communities. Join Lafiya Watson Ramirez, Kevin Ang, and Estella Tse to learn about their wins and failures and how they each harness their authentic creative voices for XR.
Join us for this very special panel featuring top creators in XR building AR apps and filters for the world to enjoy. Find out more about their latest projects in a lightning round where they'll each be given only 4 minutes to present in an extended "elevator pitch" sort of format.
The Foremothers Café is inspired by Helen Erwin's historical novel Sour Milk in Sheep's Wool, and the Swedish suffrage movement at the turn of the 20th century. Helen will share the stage with world builders Austin (Cause) Caine and Christi Fenison, her collaborators to create the world in VR.
As they will discuss during the session, Helen began by sending Cause and Christi a drawing that she had made on paper with colored pencils. Then they discussed Swedish historical and architectural details, and from there it went; with Helen's historical knowledge and Cause & Christi's world-building skills, magic happened.
