This paper critiques existing methods and experimentation that use virtual reality (VR) and associated technologies to define and measure ‘presence’. Relevant contemporary philosophical resources are used to critique and reframe existing research, introducing a new post-human perspective on presence. Here, a new methodology is built as a foundation for research methods used for capturing subjective, experiential data and to contribute to current thinking around experiential design for VR.
