DoPPioGioco Laboratory at StudiUmLab of the Department of Humanities of the University of Turin.
DoPPioGioco (Interactive Storytelling)
at StudiumLab (Università degli Studi di Torino – Palazzo Nuovo)
DoPPioGioco is a computational platform that intervenes in the relationship between performer and audience as an “intelligent prompt” that suggests the next piece to the performer, taking into account both the emotional response of the audience and the decisions of the performers.
The general idea is to test the DoubleGame methodology in a performative context. The goal is to research, develop and test a particular physical interface that allows a performer to provide narration in real time to an intelligent interactive system by playing with the audience’s response in real time.

Missing Out is a study that explores, through VR 360 ° systems and real-time streaming, FoMO, Fear of Missing Out, the social condition of feeling excluded, “cut off”.
Embodied narrative and perceptual-sensorial disorientation techniques are put in place to give the user-viewer the possibility, wearing a VR viewer, to observe from a new, immersive and engaging position.
The project was born in Linz by a group of the Master Interface Culture to investigate space-time perception in VR environments and is selected for Ars Electronica 2019.
In the same year Vanessa Vozzo proposed its development through a laboratory lasting about 15 days with the Officine Sintetici platform and together with a group of students and researchers from the Polytechnic and the University of Turin.
Missing Out is an experience lasting about 10 minutes, for one person at a time.
