Title: 6×9: A VR Experience of Solitary Confinement
Comments: “It’s using the VR characteristic of putting you in the place, but the audio and experiences that happen help tell the story like none other we’ve seen. The piece was emotional, and the fact that limited interactivity is available with VR made it the perfect storytelling platform for being confined in a space. The story is journalistically sound and has more merit because of the virtual reality platform. Unlike a lot of VR, it has a very strong narrative.”
