Take the museum into untested territory, both technologically and politically. Museums have a role to play as a platform for conversations and exchanges of views on complex and socially relevant topics. The continuing design and development of virtual reality technologies is a powerful tool in engaging visitors with emotionally, compelling narratives, ones that could change perceptions and influence how we think and behave.

The VR experience, ‘The Enemy’ is deeply affecting experiment in communication that holds the promise of opening new frontiers for the integration of journalism and art in a social experience poised at technology’s cutting edge.
