The(ir) Blurb...

In August 2014, Daniel Ashley Pierce's family verbally and physically accosted him before kicking him out of the house because they disapproved of his sexuality. Journalist Nonny de la Peña and her team have created an emotionally explosive animated interactive VR experience built directly around audio that Daniel recorded during that encounter. Out of Exile: Daniel’s Story puts your body into the middle of the action, opening up an emotionally powerful avenue of empathy to Daniel’s experience. Afterwards, come face-to-face with a volumetric capture of Daniel and three other LGBTQ youth imagining new beginnings.
