Fundacion Sansó offers a virtual tour of their space.
Seen in this video is the exhibit “Sanso at 90” which chronicles the works of Juvenal Sansó organized per decade since the 1950s. To make this virtual tour possible the museum enlisted artist Gerecho Iniel to shoot 360-degree videos of the museum’s ground and second levels.
The same technology was utilized in Iniel’s solo exhibition in Cultural Center of the Philippines titled “#AngAlamatNgMalikhaingKonsyumer” which concluded in January.
Museum Director, Ricky Francisco tells Art+ that going virtual is a way of reaching out. “It’s not the same as an actual visit, but it has its benefits which are made more apparent by the need for social distancing.”
Francisco also shared that this is not the first time that the museum has gone virtual. Digital renderings of the museum are primarily used as educational materials presented in schools. An earlier virtual reality rendering of the museum has been made by Kim Zehra Mahlo in 2019.
