Jorge Ayala-Isaza’s upcoming project grows out of his artistic practice, currently focused on historical research of national heritage archives for the creation of documentary films and installations. Jorge will explore the use of experimental modes of storytelling including 360 video, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to create immersive transmedia artworks.
