Endless canvas in VR

It’s interesting to look how two individual artists have come to a similar idea and how different their results are. Goro Fujita and Sutu Eats Flies are exploring the idea of endless canvas in virtual reality.

Architect and artist Devin Gharakhanian opened an exhibition in an abandoned motel room

It is strange, but I couldn’t find any information about the place, where Devin Gharakhanian’s installation “Room XYZ” took place. In this installation this is the most interesting part. Devin has chosen an abandoned motel room as a place of art. He took photos of interior to convert it into 3D. Then he repaired it and turned into a white “modul”. Visitors of the exhibition entered room, sat on a white chair and put on VR headsets. In VR they could see the room as it was before redecoration. Wearing HTC Vive viewers could stand up and walk around the room, touch walls and objects and think about the role of architecture and interior design in virtual reality.

Legendary Smithsonian American Art Museum launched a VR application

The application provides you with an opportunity to visit Renwick Gallery’s blockbuster exhibition «WONDER», where nine American artists demonstrated their work. Application and exhibition are dedicated to the gallery opening after 2-year renovation. The building itself, situated right opposite the White House, was designed in 1859 by James Renwick Jr. in Empire style. It was saved by Jacqueline Kennedy when Jack Kennedy decided to destroy it.  The app was made with Insta VR. Application is available in App Store or Google Play.2
