(DailyOrange)  The Sundance Ignite On Tour was a two-day event featuring virtual reality artists and their work and was hosted by the Sundance Institute, the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the School of Visual and Performing Arts.
Dan Pacheco, the Peter A. Horvitz Endowed Chair in Journalism Innovation and one of the organizers for the event, said while there has been a lot of growth in VR over the last few years, it’s too early to tell whether VR is the greatest new thing or just a “flash in the pan.” But Pacheco isn’t particularly concerned with popularity. “We should be thinking, ‘What’s unique and powerful about this medium, how can we tell stories in a really new way that engages people?’ And that is actually what drives the adoption,” he said.
