Abstract

This paper gives an overview of the research project VR for Diversity that focused on the impact of interaction in VR on the user. For this purpose, a distinction is made between physical interaction, that can be achieved by using controllers, and para-social interaction, that refers to interacting with characters that inhabit the virtual world. In line with the perceived affordance of VR to serve as a perspective shifter, the topic of diversity was chosen as the theme for the narratives that were to be created for this the research project. The paper describes a number of different projects that all evolved around this theme and concludes by presenting insights on the impact of interactive VR.
