Jesse Damiani, Curator/Producer states:
XR—a spectrum of ‘extended’ reality that includes virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR)—three-dimensionalizes the virtual world. After a half-century of computing in 2D, we are suddenly adding in the full expression of our bodies and our understanding of space...
...So what happens when reality itself is the medium?...
XR is still nascent, but as the art in this exhibition resoundingly asserts: not for much longer. (full text on gallery website)
