I Can't Speak With a Weapon
I Can’t Speak With a Weapon explores how the Syrian refugee crisis could be broadcasted through virtual reality journalism. By challenging the predictable stylish approaches through the development of radical visual language, the audience is invited to examine the relationship between graphics and political issues. In opposition to the fact reporting methods applied by major news media companies, a critical, audio-visual, poetic narrative is generated in virtual reality. The narrative is based on an innovation of a Syrian activist. With continuous oppression by the Syrian government, the Syrian activist, Ahmed Zaino, adopts creative and non-violent ways to protest.
