Breaking: Chris Milk/Vrse
By Kurt Orzeck
YOU MIGHT KNOW HIM FROM: His interactive multimedia video “The Wilderness Downtown” (for Arcade Fire’s “We Used to Wait”) and his WTF?!-worthy 3-D scanning and CGI project “Kanye West (Wall)”
NOW: His new virtual-reality company, VRSE, which has the potential to be the next big thing in interactive technology—or, less modestly, the bringer of world peace Jesus. Gandhi. This guy. Sure, it’d be a bit of a stretch— or, at least, premature—to dub Chris Milk the savior of mankind. But on this Friday afternoon, and despite battling an exhaustion-induced head cold, he sure sounds like a prophet.
