The Center for Future Storytelling at the Media Lab is rethinking storytelling for the 21st century. The Center takes a new and dynamic approach to how we tell our stories, creating new methods, technologies, and learning programs that recognize and respond to the changing communications landscape.
The Center builds on the Media Lab's more than 25 years of experience in developing society-changing technologies for human expression and interactivity. By applying leading-edge technologies to make stories more interactive, improvisational, and social, researchers are working to transform audiences into active participants in the storytelling process, bridging the real and virtual worlds, and allowing everyone to make and share their own unique stories. Research also explores ways to revolutionize imaging and display technologies, including developing next-generation cameras and programmable studios, making movie production more versatile & economic.
We host presentations from academic and industrial practitioners working in relevant areas. If you will be in Boston and are interested in possibly giving a presentation to our students, please contact us.
