I CAN’T SPEAK WITH A WEAPON
The Syrian refugee crisis is the subject of the virtual reality experience I Can’t Speak with a Weapon. Years after the Syrian civil war started, millions of Syrian people are still struggling for their lives. The war is not only about political oppression within Syria, but also about Syria’s sophisticated relationships with other countries, such as the US, Russia, and China, as well as
about the influence of the change of political structure in other Arab countries and more. This complexity makes it difficult for the audience of the media to reflect upon the issue. The research for this project is an exploration of a new medium and technology in the field of journalism. With virtual reality technology and critical design research methodologies, I Can’t Speak with a Weapon aims to bring the audience closer to the issue and invites them to approach it from new critical perspectives.
