CAP’s Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts Lab (IDIA Lab) has created a virtual gallery design system in partnership with virtual world creator Sinespace. Sinespace, a multi-user virtual world platform based in the UK, contacted IDIA to design this system for their new virtual environment. The Gallery Designer is an easy-to-use system to dynamically create gallery and museum exhibitions on the fly with any web-hosted images. Users can easily pick gallery styles (classical/modern), exterior settings, frame style, lighting, floors, wall color, and ceiling treatments – customizing an experience that is complementary to the exhibition theme. The gallery can then be easily published and can host a virtual reception with visitors from around the globe.
