An Immersive Playable Documentary

An Immersive Documentary 

Coming Winter 2022


Project in proces. Featured is a behind-the-scenes progress video.


Gone to Water is an immersive documentary that brings first-hand accounts of environmental injustice in Los Angeles, Tongva Land, into a virtual space of protest.


Built in the cross-platform game engine, Unity, Gone to Water is a collaboration with local artists, activists, and researchers that uses game design to embed environmental stories within emerging media platforms.


The experience takes audiences to several key oil extraction and refinery sites in South Los Angeles, including University Park, Watts, and Wilmington, where community members recount the impacts of urban oil drilling on community health.
