Border Stories puts people along the US-Mexico border including the National Butterfly Center to experience real stories of the people affected by the border wall and then make their own volumetric pieces online using Emblematic Group's webVR platform REACH. REACH makes the immersive power of volumetric VR available to anyone. A simple drag-and-drop interface lets users place real people into high-res 3D environments, and then share the results online across multiple platforms. Created in coordination with the Texas Civil Rights Project, Border Stories explores the ongoing fight against the border wall and the pending impact to hundreds of landowners situated along the Rio Grande.
