The web is maturing (and losing its innocence), but rapid breakthroughs in virtual reality, science and tech are once again redefining the art of interactive (non-fiction) storytelling. Caspar Sonnen (curator IDFA DocLab) presents his favorite new and upcoming projects, VR artist Robert Overweg (Triple IT) explores falsified virtual memory and creative technologist Brian Chirls (POV) launches a DIY toolkit for web-based VR.
