The Virtual Gallery exists in a three dimensional world and runs in VRML format. For anyone who has recently upgraded Netscape or Internet Explorer the required plug-ins should already be installed. However if you don't have the plug-ins we recommend the following locations below.
What is the Virtual Gallery?
The Virtual Gallery is just as it sounds, a Virtual Gallery. It consists of an ;open' room in which you can 'walk' around and study up to four different art works at a time. At first maneuvering may prove a little difficult but within a few minutes you will have mastered it (more info of moving below). Each 'wall' is dedicated to two different artists. The less extravagant virtual gallery is around 4 megabytes with the larger one (with furniture) around 8 megabytes. This means it will take around two or more minutes to load on a cable connection. If you have a fast connection to the Internet this should be a problem but if not you may need to wait a few minutes to load, for modem users we recommend the main gallery (if you use a modem and want to see what a VRML room is like we suggest you download it file onto your hard disk and view it there, this way is quicker and you can also come back to view it anytime you like without having to wait again).
How does one navigate the Virtual Gallery?
There are a few controls at the bottom of your screen and on the
side (depending on which plug-in you are using).
