Out of Exile is an impressive virtual reality experience that deals with society’s negative attitude toward LGBTQ* youth.

A boy named Daniel Ashley Pierce ends up in a heated conflict with his family due to his sexual orientation. Authentic audio recordings were used for the project, which Daniel recorded unnoticed during the actual argument.

Viewers find themselves in the midst of the conflict situation between him and his family in their living room and accompany Daniel through this emotionally charged experience. Holograms of the central characters were created using the latest techniques such as videogrammetry (3D video measurement technology) and HTC Vive (VR headset). The viewer has an opportunity to move freely through the scene and become part of the story.
