In Protest x Unarmed

Adam Davis McGee, the filmmaker behind the Oculus VR documentary In Protest recently reached out about doing a collaboration. The film captured scenes from around the country during the tensest moments in 2020 and was being presented at the Twin Cities Film Festival in Minneapolis. To support the screening he was building a physical exhibition that included original pieces of art that had been installed at George Floyd Square. He asked if Unarmed could be a centerpiece of this exhibit. Although we weren't able to travel to Minneapolis to see the exhibit in person, the space was scanned using alternate reality technology (AR) and you can experience it your phone using this link.

Panning around the scene, or even walking around it and viewing the exhibition in AR is probably the coolest use of technology to tell this story we've seen. Be sure to watch In Protest as well, or learn more about the film here. It is an honor to be included alongside other iconic artworks from the square. To be able to experience them remotely is mind-blowing.

Here's what the installation looked like IRL –
