What is the world like within Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s Victorian painting La Bella Mano?
Collaborators Troy Richards and Knut Hybinette are exploring just that in the Delaware Art Museum’s first virtual reality experience.
the seeing glass opens Nov. 18 and runs through Jan. 14, 2018 in the museum’s Pre-Raphaelite galleries. In it, the painting is transformed into a “three-dimensional waking dream with lavish décor and decaying displays of flowers, fruit, insects, and skulls.”
“The Museum has such an incredible collection and La Bella Mano offered unique opportunities for using the elements in the painting as inspiration,” said Richards. “This is a physical experience that feels real but is out of reach, much like an intangible dream world.”
Richards and Hybinette used game design software to create the virtual experience.
