Screenshot
For art fans and anyone interested in learning more about contemporary Japanese artists, this virtual art museum allows visitors to explore "modern artworks by Japan's representative artists," from anywhere in the world. Sponsored by the airline ANA, the IJC Museum was designed by Akio Takatsuka and features work by renowned artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Kohei Nawa, and Hisashi Tenmyouya. The museum, which garnered a Webby Award for Best User Interface, uses 3D scanners to allow viewers to view sculptures in great detail. As viewers travel through the museum, they can click on a variety of tags to zoom in on or rotate featured works of art. Visitors may also select an About the Artist link to learn more about each featured artist, which includes information about each artist and additional photographs and videos of each artist's work.
