Abstract

VR Nonfiction — A Mediography is an interactive database of virtual reality nonfiction content covering the period 2012–2018. Our database charts the emergence of VR nonfiction on a timeline, placing the release of content within the wider context of international film festivals and key milestones of VR technology development. In this article, we talk about the process of identifying and cataloguing this content before highlighting some key findings from the first six years of VR nonfiction.
