A secret door to an art gallery in your school library

Would you and your pupils like access to wander round an impressive art gallery with vast rooms and high ceilings – tucked away in the corner of your classroom or school library? Gallery Ghost allows you to explore a virtual reality exhibition on any theme, even if you are miles away from the nearest major museum. It allows you to create a customised exhibition of works not on display anywhere in the country.
There are opportunities for pupils to act as curators as they choose images and write labels – or pick up technical skills as they populate the gallery using industry standard software. Alternatively, we can create a bespoke gallery for you using your own artwork and assist with capture of images and 3d objects. The technology is well suited to partnership projects with museums, and to extend the benefit of a museum visit beyond a single day.
The immersive experience of Gallery Ghost makes exploring an art collection a vivid, lived 3D experience –  completely unlike exploring collections on a normal monitor.  Secret gallery rooms and treasure hunts can also be programmed into the system.

About

Gallery Ghost is the brainchild of Ixxy, a web agency based in the vibrant arts and tech hub of Brighton, England.

At Ixxy we combine our interest in emerging technologies with a genuine passion for the creative arts. We believe VR can transform the way people view and share art, but that it should be done without losing sight of the reasons why we visit art galleries in the first place.

We noticed that VR applications in the arts sector often suffer from poor design, tending to rely on novelty value instead of focusing on the art itself. We developed Gallery Ghost to remedy this, and to maximise VR’s potential to bring more art to more audiences in a way that is practical, engaging and authentic.

 

Services

The Gallery Ghost team can provide bespoke applications, services and consultancy for VR projects in the arts and culture sector and beyond. We love technical and creative collaborations and we’re always looking for new projects to inspire us, so whether you have a specific project in mind or would just like to brainstorm ideas, get in touch.
