Run Like A Refugee.
Millions of refugee headlines pop-up in the media every day, making people
numb for the human stories behind these numbers. To make people literally feel
the intensity of the issue I created an interactive installation that lets them run
like a refugee. Using the true (and horrible) story of Himan Machmudi, people could
experience his journey from Iran to the Netherlands in VR. A bizar crusade through
mine fields, court houses, prisons, the hands of human traffickers and immigration
This installation was awards a Webby award and two Lovies
