"Karen Palmer, an award-winning multidisciplinary immersive filmmaker, believes a new type of storytelling is needed in order to shift people’s perspectives and make a difference in the world. Inspired by the events in Ferguson, MO, following the shooting of Michael Brown, Palmer created RIOT, an emotionally responsive, live-action film that uses AI and machine learning through facial recognition to allow participants to navigate though a dangerous riot. Palmer’s work challenges participants to understand other people’s lived experiences, and represents a powerful development in the emerging field of neurogames."
