Explore artworks in one 3 dimensional space
By Cyril Diagne & Nicolas Barradeau

Available on desktop only. 

Mathematical formulas are used to place the artworks in a 3D environment, where you can choose to visualise what a cultural big bang might look like, or travel through the sea of artworks decade by decade. Artworks are animated in realtime in the web browser using WebGL and with resolutions up to 1024px, made possible by a mix of data pre-processing and “level-of-detail” mechanisms. This allows you to interact with the artworks and identify patterns at scale.
