Artists have always been at the forefront of using technological advancements to find new ways to express themselves and question the prevalent aesthetics of their times. Virtual and Augmented Reality are among the latest technological advancements and instantly drew attention from artists, creators, and innovators. Through the medium of Virtual Reality, these pioneers are fully captivating and engaging their audiences within these immersive realities that question where we come, where we are, where we are going, not only as artists but as mankind. The VR Salon: Immersive Realities exhibition explores the idea of these new immersive media as a tool for a new form of artistic expression.
