From the 27.4.2012 to the 2.5.2012, the 3D online application virtual gallery space is accessible for visitors from all over the world to exchange ideas and information about art for visitors of the Gallery Weekend Berlin 2012.
Each gallery at Virtual Gallery Weekend Berlin beta is marked clearly at its real-life location on a map of Berlin. Having entered this virtual world as an avatar, visitors will be able to:
• locate all the galleries you wish to visit
• visit the virtual show room of each gallery and view the works of art
• share information and your impressions with friends and other visitors
• contact the gallery owner to state your interest in buying specific pieces
• participate in an event even when you are unable to attend in person
The Virtual Gallery Weekend Berlin beta does not aim merely to be a visualization of an art event, but to facilitate a shared experience, to explore possible artistic interactions in a virtual 3D environment, and to exchange ideas and information about art. We are also explore to see how the physical and virtual worlds of the Gallery Weekend crossover and develop throughout the event.
