Chris Milk How virtual reality can create the ultimate empathy machine

This inspiring talk details how Chris Milk turned from an acclaimed music video director who wanted to tell emotional stories of the human condition into an experiential artist who does the same via virtual reality.

He worked with the United Nations to make virtual reality films such as “Clouds Over Sidra,” which gives a first-person view of the life of a Syrian refugee living in Jordan, so that U.N. workers can better understand how their actions can impact people’s lives around the world.

Milk notes, “[Virtual reality] is not a video game peripheral. It connects humans to other humans in a profound way that I’ve never seen before in any other form of media… It’s a machine, but through this machine, we become more compassionate, we become more empathetic, and we become more connected — and ultimately, we become more human.”
