Hearts and Minds: The Interrogations Project is an interactive Virtual Reality narrative performance developed in Unity for the CAVE2TM large-scale 320-degree panoramic virtual reality environment at the Electronic Visualization Lab (EVL) at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC). The work provides an experience of true stories of abusive violence, battlefield torture and post-traumatic stress during the American-led counterinsurgency and counterterrorism campaigns in Iraq in the years after September 11, 2001. The immersive virtual reality environment of the CAVE2TM is used to communicate both difficult truths about torture and to produce an affective impression of the how these practices were experienced by individual American soldiers.
