to mark the 500th anniversary celebrations of one of the world’s greatest painters hieronymus bosch, burell durant hifle (BDH) created a free special virtual reality application to discover a selection of the artist’s paintings. ‘bosch VR’ enables users to visit the ‘garden of eden’, be tempted by strange fruit and even stranger rituals in the ‘garden of earthly delights.’ available for both iOS and android phones, the VR experience lets you focus on every little detail, and analyze dense painting through a different perspective.

  • This is a pay-to-use app and the only way to find out what you have to pay is to install it and run it. I consider that sleazy.
