The Wilderness Downtown

“The Wilderness Downtown” is an interactive interpretation, created by Chris Milk, of Arcade Fire’s song “We Used To Wait” and was built entirely with the latest open web technologies, including HTML5 video, audio, and canvas. Start off by entering the street where you grew up and it will be merged into the story, where you have the opportunity to interact throughout the video itself. For best performance you should view it in Google Chrome.
