Art galleries and exhibitions spaces have suffered due to lockdowns and quarantine caused by COVID-19, and hence there was a great demand for virtual, interactive experiences worldwide. Mezmedia has been working with a consultant to launch a virtual art gallery online. A fully immersive 3D space where people can visit virtually, interact and learn about the works of art.
This Virtual Art Gallery is accessible entirely by the web browser, with the experience optimized for PCs, laptops and desktops, as well as for tablets and large-screen, flagship smartphones.
Every virtual 3D space is modelled from scratch, this gallery is one of the few templates we have created. We call this 3D virtual art space you see now ‘Galerie Peiro‘.
It’s a single-storey modern art gallery with high ceilings and walls that are configurable in any way the curator desires.
Galerie Peiro is designed with flexibility in mind, as we understand every art show is different.
The layout of the 3D virtual gallery can be customized according to the requirements. The lights can be tweaked to change the mood and environment of the space. The walls can be repainted in another color, even the floors can be changed as well.
Visitors only use their mouse (for desktop users) or their finger (for touchscreen users) to navigate around the 3D virtual art gallery easily. There is no need for any keyboard controls.
Drag the mouse cursor to move the view, click on the ground to move around.
Visitors can click on the artwork to view it in close detail, and open up a small pop-up panel to read more information about the artist. This pop-up panel allows the curator to also include videos, live chat and more interactive points of contact.
The UI/UX team worked tirelessly with our engineers, they spent a lot of time tweaking the speed of movement, camera pan speeds and viewing angles to ensure an ideal user experience.
Our art team put in plenty of effort was put into optimizing the immersive interactive 3D environment for the web, keeping file sizes small and polygonal count of the models low. The result is a fast-loading, lightweight experience on the desktop and high-end mobile phones and tablets.
The best part of Galerie Peiro and the other 3D interactive art galleries we have built? It runs straight from the web browser. No need to download any app or software. Utilizing the latest technologies and new browser standards, the 3D interactive virtual space can be loaded in the newest web browsers like Chrome and Firefox.
