Those who visit the Armory Show in New York will have to strap on a Microsoft Hololens headpiece if they want to experience the 'Concrete Storm' virtual museum exhibition to the fullest.

The exhibition developed in partnership with Studio Drift uses augmented reality to enhance the experience of viewing what the project describes as "the world’s first self-contained holographic computer." Because one's experience of the exhibition happens through the lens of a virtual reality headset, each person's perspective is incredibly unique.

Concrete Storm marks Microsoft’s first official collaboration with a commercial art venture, and this is just one instance of how virtual and augmented reality are being used to enhance the world of modern art.
