Each room is a unique URL where visitors can view an exhibition. Some exhibitions consist of multiple rooms connected by URL Portals, which could be for stylistic reasons or because the page load time was too great for a single room.
We allow creators to attach hyperlinks to any artwork that they upload, which can be used to link to any NFT platform that you are using. New Art City requires a 10% commission fee on any artwork that you sell in this way.
We are currently working on an export feature that allows room owners to generate a ZIP folder containing all the necessary files to host their room long-term on any webserver. This generates a static webpage, and does not include features for multiplayer, livestreaming or editing.
In short: images, videos, audio and 3D files. Please see our File Format Guidelines for specifics.
There are no strict limits for combined file sizes in a room, but every additional file increases the load time of the page, and exhibition designers must keep this in mind. Media is automatically converted into optimized formats, but per-file there is an upload limit of 500MB. Please see our File Format Guidelines for specifics.
Each 3D installation also generates a matching 2D catalog view with images and metadata, which serves as an accessible layer friendly to assistive technologies. Exhibition designers are responsible for entering alt-text and descriptions of their environments to make this view a fully accessible experience. Our tool has passed VPAT compliance, and can be used in public universities.
Not yet, but we have built it in a way where this will be possible in the future.
The gallery view is built using the open source 3D rendering library, three.js. Everything else is a custom system using standard web technology.
