I am a final year PhD student at the University of Plymouth.

The objective of this research project is to find a new and compelling method for telling stories and narratives that are presented via the use of an interactive panorama that encompass the use of communication technologies and virtual reality. The final goal of the project is to build on the tradition of touring panoramas and to create a new form of demountable immersive digital 'gallery space' or 'virtual arena' that is suitable for a broad spectrum of audio-visual material and other creative content.
