VR/Exposition (for VR One & Google Cardboard)
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Welcome to the first version of the VR/Exposition. This exposition has been created for the Zeiss VR One and Google Cardboard headsets. We are investigating new ways to connect the real art world to the virtual world. This virtual reality exposition has been created in cooperation with two artist:
Patrick Hughes (London)
This artist makes 'reverspective' art that moves whilst you walk around it. We virtualised one of his works to demonstrate this in a virtual environment.
Cathalijn Wouters (Amsterdam)
Cathalijn makes lovely paintings of abstract art. She uses a combination of paint and charcoal. Let yourself me inspired by the beauty of her art.
Good, a little quirky
There are works from two different artists on display in a gallery you can walk around. It's a little quirky to get it to stop in the right place to look at the art or the videos about the artists. I had to try a couple of times to get it right otherwise I was too close or far away or right or left of a good spot.
One of the artist does work in three dimensions but it looks like a flat painting when you first walk up to it. It is a great choice for this venue but again it was hard to get up to the art and just move over a little to see the work from a different angle.
Moving around needs work
Moving is hard, stopping is worse. This would be better if you could move freely but you usually end up too close. And one video played no visual and two audios slightly overlapped.
I'm looking forward to an update as I do like the app.
This is an unusual example of VR that makes you feel like you're visiting an art gallery! There are even some excellent documentary videos on a couple of the artists.
