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 Mobile 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.
