Recognizing the need for a creative, more engaging and realistic way to present art online, in the last few months, collaborating with an expert in Europe, we have been developing a new state-of-the-art 3-D online platform, ArtVirtualy.
Rather than presenting images on flat web pages, ArtVirtualy invites the viewer to enter a virtual 3-D gallery space and wander freely as if present in the room, simulating a personal tour of an exhibition. More important, ArtVirtualy allows the viewer to approach selected individual artworks up close, attaining a sense of texture, detail and dimension.
Adding more interest, as in a museum, the viewer may listen to audio clips offering insights on featured artworks by representative artists, curators, or gallery directors.
While seeing art online cannot replace the real life experience, ArtVirtualy is a valuable alternative, especially when art spaces are closed or only open during restricted hours at limited capacity.
