Essay Film + Smartphone App + Interactive Website

Wander, Wonder, Wilderness utilizes multiple media components—an essay film, smart phone app and interactive website. The essay film acts as a catalyst for a contemplative and ruminative journey that happens organically as the filmmaker and audience probe deeper into their experiences in urban wilds. The smart phone app allows the audience and other interested individuals to explore on their own terms and generate shared images and text relative to their personal experiences in green spaces throughout greater Boston. The website will compile and present this content, allowing for a collective understanding of these urban wilds and their affect on those who engage in these spaces.


As the project’s mobile app is currently offered for iOS, we welcome Android or Windows users to participate by using the #wanderurbanwilds on Instagram. View our Gallery.
