"Every time we build something new, more of my questions get answered, even if a few more questions come up. It feels like we’re getting better at it each time, and this is an evolving medium and an evolving process."

Virtual reality pioneer Chris Milk has no delusions that his medium is anything but a nascent one. "Every time we build something new, more of my questions get answered, even if a few more questions come up. It feels like we’re getting better at it each time, and this is an evolving medium and an evolving process," he tells PSFK.

Milk, already well known for his interactive websites like Arcade Fire's "The Wilderness Downtown", has experimented with virtual reality documentary projects such as Clouds Over Sidra and Waves of Grace. He also gave a TED talk on the future of VR in March.

"It’s just a different kind of composition," he says of creating VR content. "Rather than trying to contain something in a frame, it’s about where you are placing the viewer’s consciousness in space, and how they relate to that space, and the choreography of people moving around them."
