Immersion and Touch

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

Most people who have encountered interactive experiences have felt the power of immersion, a feeling you get when you suddenly remember where you’ve been or when you hear someone say, “She’s really into that, isn’t she.” When you’re under water you’re under water and when you’re under water you must pace yourself or grow gills. On the one hand, would immersion involve actions in other places, such as turning a stone under water. This is why they say that immersive experiences must require concentration. On several other palms, would immersion simply be a state of new remembering.

But we are, after all, immersed in life and one immersive experience happens within another, as in a Flash infinite symbol structure.
