SXSW 2020

Love, Memes and the Future of XR Human Connection


XR completely changes how we connect with one another... but also our inner selves. In this panel, award-winning VR+AR creators, journalists and designers sit down to discuss the future of intimacy, communities & self-understanding in a new world of fluid identities, digital wizardry and immersive memes - and how it all comes together to describe the next generation of human connection.

Here we'll explore the new role identity plays in XR social interactions, share examples of new kinds of XR intimacy, discuss how immersive memes represent new types of virtual communities & how XR ultimately changes our understanding of self, forever affecting our relationships online and offline.

Join us as we explore these new rules of human connection and prepare... things are about to get weird.
