The Human Dimension of Virtual Reality
A virtual talk with Rachel Rossin
May 20, 2021
How do we account for the tension between technology’s infinite, unrestricted promise and the impermanence of being human? Rachel Rossin interrogates this slippage. Floating between painting, VR worlds, holograms, and more, the Brooklyn-based artist carries with her the essence of what it means to be alive. Rossin’s work meditates on and pushes the boundaries of human perception, the tenderness, and the vulnerability of empirical experience.
On May 20th, Rachel spoke with Killscreen founder, Jamin Warren, on her childhood underwater and the illusory nature of immersive technology. We also spoke about Rachel’s approach to her process, looking at her recent traveling shows with Rhizome and at Magenta Plains in New York.
