Virtual reality evangelist and pioneering creator Chris Milk talks to Vanity Fair about why he believes so wholeheartedly in the technology. Milk app Vrse and its production company Vrse.works have been responsible for some of the most compelling VR content to be released thus fur, including Clouds Over Sidra, his documentary about a young Syrian refugee.

“For a long time, I believed that a great piece of music on its own could do more to stir the soul than any other single art form,” says Milk. “But in virtual reality, we’re placing the viewer inside a moment or a story … made possible by sound and visual technology that’s actually tricking the brain into believing it’s somewhere else.”
