Fine artist Rachel Rossin combines her oil painting skills with her interest in coding to create virtual reality artworks, like her current exhibit Lossy showing in New York's Zieher Smith & Horton gallery.

"I work from physical captures from my home and studio," Rossin explains to Observer. "With photogrammetry [a way to measure depth data from photographs and recover exact surface points], I’m able to apply gravity and light to different parts of the meshes, creating a 3-D environment."
