Description: The GIPHY Museum of GIF Art is the first ever virtual reality GIF art museum. The current exhibition in the MoGA is Loop Dreams, the accompaniment to our 2016 IRL exhibition. Works by 20 artists are exhibited in a beautiful, nonlinear environment. GIPHY MoGA is available on Steam for HTC Vive, as well as a mobile VR experience on the App Store and Google Play. Made in collaboration with OONI.
Review: GIPHY Museum of GIF Art is an odd VR experience for sure, but essentially it is a virtual art gallery for GIF art. You can walk around that said art gallery and you can look at the art, but that is about it. While I do like my art I still feel this was a little too basic to be fully enjoyable. The good news is that it is free so you can at least try it for yourself if it seems like it might be something you would enjoy. I didn’t hate it myself, I just know it could have been a lot better.
