In June 2012, five students from Kewediono, a small Waorani community along the Shiripuno River, embarked on a two-week journey to document their culture and land. They traveled by river and road to other communities impacted more heavily by oil roads, through colonial settlements and oil bases, and down the Tiputini River to the heart of the Yasuní Biological Reserve. Isolated far from any road, Kewediono represents a middle ground between the traditional Waorani culture that existed only 50 years ago and the more assimilated communities found along the major oil roads. The entire trip was documented with stunning interactive panoramic images, so that the audience can follow the students in an interactive and intimate way, and be able to develop their own understanding of an incredibly complex situation. Look closely at the images and you will find interactive phots, videos, and information embedded into the panoramas.
