Digital Arrest is a virtual reality experience based on a true story that allows users to embody Jarrell Daniels, a young Black man whose social media presence fueled conspiracy charges leading to a six-year prison sentence in a New York prison. As the 3D Animator and Technical Artist, I created the 3D characters and environments in Maya and developed the VR experience in UE4. Digital Arrest explores how social media can be used as a tool for policing in the 21st century. The experience was founded by Columbia University’s SAFELab and awarded 1st place for Creative Tech at the NYC Media Lab Demo Expo.
