Hunger is based on real audio of an incident at a food bank outside the First Unitarian Church in downtown Los Angeles: a diabetic man waiting on line collapsed when his blood sugar level dropped too low, and an ambulance had to be called. Emblematic Founder Nonny De la Peña was inspired to recreate the event in VR, using animated figures to represent the participants

The piece led Fast Company to name de la Peña  "One of the People Who Made The World More Creative."
