Description: The Galactic Gallery is an aesthetically driven experience exploring intersections between traditional art and the emerging meta mediums of virtual and augmented reality. It is an art gallery featuring 10 world renowned artists with holographic effects on over 20 unique art pieces only possible in virtual reality.

Traditional mediums are reimagined with effects only possible in a virtual reality and new methods of creating and interacting with art are explored. Paintings and sculpture by these artists are given special treatment to be more engaging in the Virtual environment with custom shaders and bespoke animation – layers extrapolated to give some paintings depth while others have subtle effects that are only possible in the digital realm. The sound design is specifically tailored for the SUBPAC physical audio device for an immersive experience.

Review: Galactic Gallery is not one of those interactive VR experiences that everyone will like, but for those who do like it, they will probably love it. I like art anyway, especially wall art so seeing a VR experience that sees wall art coming to life was a joy for me. While there are only 20 works of art to enjoy some of us will still find value for money here. Sadly there is no demo available so unless you already know it is something you will enjoy I really wouldn’t bother.
