Abstract

The special section “Immersion and expanded spectatorships” discusses how moving images have been intensely reinvented in recent virtual environments, promoting renewed forms of viewing that change and broaden the spectator’s experience. Engaging with the fact that the history of immersive media is often difficult
to reconstruct and categorize clearly, the four essays here gathered reflect precisely such plurality of research lines. Simultaneously, they further demonstrate how this field has for long been shaped — and continues to be so — in a hybrid manner, through fruitful dialogues and mutual contamination.

O dossier temático “Imersão e experiências de receção expandidas” discute o modo como as imagens em movimento têm vindo a ser fortemente reinventadas em ambientes virtuais recentes, promovendo renovadas formas de visionamento que modificam e alargam a experiência dos seus espectadores. Considerando que a história dos média imersivos é frequentemente complexa de reconstruir e de categorizar de forma inequívoca, os quatro ensaios aqui reunidos procuram espelhar essa pluralidade de investigação, demonstrando como este é um campo que sempre se construiu — e continua a construir-se — hibridamente, através de profícuos diálogos e de contaminações mútuas.
