WONDER 360: Experience the Renwick Gallery’s Immersive Exhibition in Virtual Reality
Using VR technology, you can now experience WONDER on your device! The free “WONDER 360” app captures the Renwick Gallery’s WONDER exhibition as a moment in time, including detailed 360° 3D panoramic views of each gallery, enhanced by video interviews with many of the artists and the curator.
WONDER at the Renwick Gallery
Nine leading contemporary artists created site-specific, gallery-sized installations celebrating the Renwick Gallery. These immersive and awe-inspiring installations by Jennifer Angus, Chakaia Booker, Gabriel Dawe, Tara Donovan, Patrick Dougherty, Janet Echelman, John Grade, Maya Lin, and Leo Villareal turned the building into a larger-than-life work of art.
Tips for a Great 3D Virtual Reality Experience
- The app uses the gyroscopic sensors in your mobile device, so find a place where you are free to move and rotate safely. Swivel chairs are perfect for this.
- To “click” on an a marker within the space, rotate your phone’s position to focus the cursor on the marker, and simply wait for one or two seconds.
- Although a VR headset or viewer is not required, the 3D feature can only be experienced when using such a headset or VR viewer, such as Google Cardboard.
- You can enjoy “WONDER 360” without WiFi, but please note that the optional video download may be slower without a fast Internet connection. In order to keep the initial app size as lightweight as possible we configured each artist video as a separate download.
