Visions of Immersion:  Technologies and Fantasies of the Hyperreal
Alison Griffiths, acclaimed author of Shivers Down Your Spine:  Cinema, Museums, and the Immersive View, argues that our desire to become physically immersed in virtual worlds long predates contemporary technologies such as Oculus Rift.  Griffiths takes us on a voyage of discovery where we come to appreciate the remarkable range of spaces and objects that not only predate contemporary immersive technologies such as VR and 3D but may very well outlast them.
