Walking into an art gallery means surrendering yourself to whatever visuals might be on display against the space’s white walls. You negotiate space as you walk through an exhibition and take in each piece. But what happens when virtual reality is added into the mix?

Visitors to the Zieher Smith & Horton gallery in October and November got a bit of a surprise when they walked into the gallery to see virtual reality headsets displayed alongside the oil paintings of artist Rachel Rossin. For “Lossy,” she created a series of paintings whose visual fields were warped by technology. In one self-portrait, she took a 3D-scanned capture of her face and tinkered with the gravity aspect of the image to create something new.
