The Galactic Gallery is an aesthetically driven VR experience exploring intersections between traditional art and new media. It’s a fully immersive experience using the HTC VIVE VR platform, SUBPAC, and headphones. It’s an immersive VR art gallery floating in space where special treatments and effects have been applied so that the art could only be viewed in this medium. The experience takes you on a journey with art from the world’s top visionary artists.
The artists featured the gallery are Android Jones, Mars-1, Chris Dyer, Mugwort, Mear One, Xavi, Raul Casillas, Luke Brown, Amanda Sage, and Hans Haveron. The artwork was curated in part by Archival Ink Gallery.
The Galactic Gallery beta was presented at Lightning in a Bottle Festival, VRLA, Art & VR (SF), Brewery Art Walk, and Lucidity Festival. The official release will be available on STEAM in mid July 2017.
