The Mojave Project is an experimental transmedia documentary exploring the physical, geological and cultural landscape of the Mojave Desert. The Mojave Project reconsiders and establishes multiple ways in which to interpret this unique and complex landscape, through the association and connection of seemingly unrelated sites, themes, and subjects thus creating a speculative and immersive experience for its audience.

The Mojave Project is supported by California Humanities through our California Documentary Project (CDP) grant making program. To learn more about how to apply to CDP, please click here.
