6×9: A Virtual Experience of Solitary Confinement

Company: The Mill

What’s it like to spend 23 hours a day in a cell measuring 6×9 feet for days, weeks, months or even years? 6×9 is the Guardian’s first virtual reality experience, which places you inside a US solitary confinement prison cell and tells the story of the psychological damage that can ensue from isolation.

The Mill created a mobile app allowing you to fully experience VR on your own, with or without cardboard viewer. If you don’t have a smartphone scroll down to watch the 360° video. In this talk Jarrad talks about the creative and technical challenges as well as the reach and impact of the experience.
