Deixis: Narratives in Mixed Reality

Room J

According to Charlotte Linde, life stories are conciliations and exchanges between an addressee and a speaker. The reframing of personal narratives is not only a means of informing the addressee but is also an attempt at rationalization the speaker gives to him/her/them self. Personal narratives shift through addition of life events, consideration and reflection of prior occurrences, protection of self-image, and desire for cohesiveness and consequence. DeixisXR is a cross-platform experience that allows users to record and interact with their own oral histories– abstracting their stories and memories into aesthetic forms.
