Powering a Nation
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“100 Gallons” is a student-created multimedia project from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  It explores how our most critical resource goes far beyond traditional power. More than fossil fuels, commerce or industry, water powers life.

Content gathering for this project adheres to strict journalistic principles. Even for our centerpiece video, which takes a creative look at our everyday water usage, we photographed real people and real moments. The experimental element of “100 Gallons” is taking that creative concept presentation and using it as an interface to engage the user in an immersive exploration with a single click.

Doctors at UNC Hospitals started using therapeutic hypothermia after hearing stories of people who survived hours with no pulse because they had fallen into freezing water.

After Mike Patil suffered a heart attack, doctors put him on ice, and he lived to tell the story.

North Carolina officials are working to make the therapy standard state-wide.
