Culture VR - Immersive Mugshots

Immersive Mugshots


Rob is a Yankton Sioux and a Vietnam war veteran. During his life, he was arrested 60 times for different reasons, like bar fights and drug abuse, in 8 different states of the United States of America.

Nowadays, Rob works as a pipemaker in Berlin; he crafts peace pipes from a traditional and sacred red stone. But after over 20 spent in exile overseas, Rob decides to take a journey back to his homeland. He needs some pipestone, and he also is on a special quest.

Through Virginia, Colorado and the reservations of Dakota, Rob is going to visit every police station where he was ever arrested and collect his mugshots. Ultimately, he plans to invite every policeman he has met to a photographic exhibition.
