Virtual reality is increasingly being used by museums as a tool for creating interactive visitor experiences and bringing collections to life.
As part of its ongoing Performance Festival, the V&A Museum presented a preview of its exclusive virtual reality recording of David Bowie’s musical Lazarus, taken during the show’s London run. The exhibit is part of the V&A’s From VHS to VR program, which took place on April 30.
Earlier this month, Sky VR Studio announced its plans to create a virtual reality 3D hologram of David Attenborough, enabling visitors to view the museum’s specimens while watching the iconic nature documentary presenter share his insight. As part of the one-on-one interactive experience. Attenborough will guide participants as they virtually handle fossils, bones and skulls – holding them up, tilting them and peering inside. Hold the World goes into production later this year. —
