For our inaugural Virtual Reality Day event, Carnegie Mellon University Libraries welcomes you to a panel discussion for a film unlike any other. A Glitch in the Matrix is a groundbreaking remix-documentary that explores simulation theory using in-depth interviews with experts and amateurs combined with cultural artifacts like popular video games and motion picture film clips to illustrate a mind-bending glimpse into the vortex of reality. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher of Room 237 & The Nightmare, this is an experience not to be missed.
This event includes an informative discussion with the film’s director along with insight by multiple individuals from various disciplines on campus:
- Emma Slayton, Data Curation, Visualization, and GIS Specialist,
- Ralph Vituccio, Filmmaker & Teaching Professor in the Entertainment
Technology Center, IDeATe, and Department of English
- Kristen Kurland, Teaching Professor of Architecture, Information
Systems, and Public Policy for Heinz College and School of Architecture
This virtual event is free and open to the public.
