Radiance is a research platform and database for VR Art and an App for Meta Quest headsets presenting 40+ artistic VR experiences.


Our mission is to present artists working with VR from all over the world to create visibility and accessibility for VR art and for faster adoption of virtual technologies. The platform works closely with artists, institutions and independent curators to select the highest quality of virtual art for public institutional exhibitions. 


How do VR experiences in visual arts differ from others?

Visual artists use their chosen medium to critically reflect upon and discuss today’s society or individual living conditions, to speak about e.g. science, philosophy, etc. or to scrutinize and question the possibilities or limits of the medium itself. They go beyond the creative possibilities of the medium and deal critically with their surroundings to include their thoughts and conclusions within their artwork.
