Disciplines often approach phenomena from different perspectives and with different research tools. We offer this example of our efforts to embrace the wider CHI values through the exploration of emotive digital humans deployed in HCI. We designed and conducted an HCI experiment with mixed methods. In building an infrastructure that benefits from the strengths of both AIS SIGHCI and ACM SIGCHI research communities, we chose an approach that could reveal undisclosed worlds, hard to see from just one perspective. As technology offers HCI digital humans, new combined shared approaches may be needed to gain insights, especially prior to their wide scale deployment. As bridging related disciplines has failed in the past, perhaps a new approach is needed, one of shared experiences, especially when exploring new technological phenomenon
