VR Diaries: A Powerful Experience Within ‘6x9’
Out of the six virtual reality pieces I watched recently, I found the storytelling of incarcerated people in “6x9” the most powerful. Being in the cell and not experiencing the different areas of the prison was the weakest part. I think if I was able to experience lunch time or yard time with the prisoners, this VR video would be more interesting. An interesting part that I remember the most was floating in the air. To me, this simulated a prisoner hallucinating because he had been in the 6x9 cell for so long. The writing on the walls was a great way to keep the the audience engaged with the storytelling.
