Piet Mondrian is the first artist to have his own virtual, multi-user museum.
No artist has influenced modern art, design and architecture more than Mondrian. The Stijl movement, Bauhaus, post-war abstraction right up to Apple design: all are indebted to Mondrian's revolutionary ideas on art and how it should be an integral part of daily culture.
Mondrian ranks next to only three other world-famous Dutch artists: Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn and Vincent van Gogh.
Imagine you could visit Mondrian's complete works all over the world in just one day. No airports, no traffic, just strolling around.
Imagine you could meet art lovers from all over the world to discuss his work.
Make friends with like-minded people. Real friends, whom you may visit or share your ideas with.
Visit the Mondrian 3D world and make it happen.
In a 3d museum you can stroll around, chat with other visitors, take a guided tour, build your own exhibition and invite your private audience.
Mondrian3D is the first multi-user virtual museum on the web and a pilot project for more art museums to come.
The Museum3D viewer is a MS Windows plugin; it runs on a Mac through Parallels, Bootcamp, Virtual Box or VMware Fusion 4. After installing the ActiveWorlds plug-in follow the instructions on the screen. Moving around in the 3D museum is quite simple. You only need the four basic arrows on your keyboard. If you use your mouse, you can also fly! After entering you can also choose your avatar.
Museum3D partners are:
Marty Bax (Bax Art Concepts & Services), internationally renowned Mondrian specialist;
Sjoerd van Essen (Director DX Media);
