Tearless is a 360 3D immersive VR project on “US comfort women”, forced by the South Korean government to serve US soldiers in camp towns outside the US military bases. Using immersive media technology, this project focuses on these women’s memories within a detainment center called “Monkey House”—a prison established by the South Korean government and staffed by the US military in the 1970s to isolate and treat comfort women with STDs.
