is a New York based painter and programmer. Her exhibit “Lossy” was a combination of oil and canvas (traditional painting techniques) and digital capture. Rossin would scan her surroundings/objects and upload the scans to unity to edit. She would then paint the resulting view which results in a fragmented and “lossy” representation of the original space. I love this work and I love her subject matter because I am exploring a very similar realm in my art. I am interested in memory and the lossy, fragmented attributes of that as well as in the relationship between the real, tangible world and the virtual. Her work spans a gap between the two in a very aesthetically pleasing way (even if it is very straightforward and simple).
