BAYBERRY

step inside

 
 

step inside

   he year is 1987, and the story is based on true                events. Before moving out of his childhood home, a guarded, young gender-queer person must share his true identity with his father.

 

BAYBERRY is the name of the house, our story, and the young man who serves as your guide in witnessing this coming out moment between father and child. He will accompany you as you are surrounded by the characters' contradicting painful memories and hopeful visions of the future.

the empathy machine

        eople call virtual reality the empathy machine. It is             our mission to use this 360 experience to share the burden of hidden identity and the catharsis of its release. How might you walk through the world differently after being immersed in another's struggle?

Sharing this experience digitally allows people across the country and world to see the humanity in our hero's journey, and hopefully walk away with a greater sense of acceptance and openness.
