Summer of Digital Love: Kunstmatrix

This post is part of our Summer of Digital Love series, where we chill by the pool while chatting about our favourite hardware, magazines, websites, creative assets and digital esoteria!

Building your own VR/3D art gallery installation is great fun (see our showcase month right here on!) , but for a ‘quick win’ you can generate a browser-based 3d gallery in under 15 minutes using the popular Kunstmatrix. The site is used by professionals, amateurs and students alike to showcase their work in a clean, professional-looking virtual gallery:

We selected a contemporary exhibition of Romanian vinyl cover art for a closer look:

Select ‘start guided tour’ to automatically view the exhibition in an order assigned by the gallery curator:

Individual works can incorporate additional multimedia, like the vinyl cover below with a short audio clip from the album:

You can stop the tour at any time and explore the 3d environment at your leisure using WASD or cursor keys. A nice nod to gamers there 🙂

If you’d like to create your own gallery, a free account lets you create a gallery with up to 10 artworks, though you can’t share it. Paid tiers start at around 12 USD/month (which includes up to 50 artworks across up to 5 public galleries):

We created a free account to test the gallery builder. So far we’ve uploaded a single image of a Space Invader:

There are detailed image display options, including ‘frame thickness’ and precise colour control, indicative of the site’s intention to appeal to a serious / professional audience:

Next we select our gallery style, including the primary wall colour. It’s nice to see an option to add ambient audio too!

Let the gallery curation begin! Images can be dragged and dropped into place:

Because we’re using the free account we are unable to share our creation with the world. The above process took less than 15 minutes, and Kunstmatrix continues to be an affordable way to display (and sell) your artwork, or just have fun creating a 3d space and populating it with images of friends and family!
