Abstract

Powered by the development of the digital technology, virtual reality (VR) gets resurrected because of the photo-realistic experience it could offer. However, people's perception of the reality does not evolve with this rapid digital evolution, and we are still confined by the epistemology when looking at the reality reproduced in VR. This paper discusses the possibility of introducing the alternative VR storytelling technique that does not follow the realism. By not fully mimicking the reality, we hope to find a way to combine the VR formalism and realism together.
