The Zium Garden is an incredible virtual art gallery that contains art installations from artist all around the world, often containing artwork that could only ever exist in a digital form.
We featured The Zium Museum, the precursor to The Zium Garden, on Free Game Planet last year and were in awe of the size and scope of its take on the virtual art museum, but with the latest iteration they’ve really outdone themselves. It features artwork from 56 different artist and is a celebration of art of all forms – from traditional paintings and photography to sculptures, game art, dioramas and short films. Perhaps the most spectacular installations are the different zones that you can warp to though – containing all manner of weird and wonderful delights that you explore in first person.
It’s a fantastic experience that feels like the evolution of the traditional art museum. The majority of these artworks could never exist in the real world, but in the expanses of the The Zium Garden allow them to shine and push the boundaries of art. Highly recommended.
