The Indiana Daily Student features Chris Gernon’s upcoming TedxTalk at Indiana University coming next Tuesday, in the IU Auditorium at 6 p.m Oct. 26. Chris will speak on Fugitives’ recent virtual reality project Francis, and how the new technology of Virtual Reality as a tool helped to bring mental illness out of the shadows and onto the stage. Chris’ talk will not only feature the thoughts behind the scenes of Francis, but pieces of Chris’ own life and how his own life experiences influenced creative decisions while making the VR film.
At the TEDx talk Gernon will continue to speak about his time contributing to this film and how he makes a connection bridging mental illness and technology together. His fellow speakers will also have unique stories and solutions to offer on a variety of subjects ranging from fake news to pianists and sustainable food sources.
