If you missed Ai Weiwei's recent exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, don't fret. The work of the filmmaker, photographer and sculptor is available online in 360-degree video. An internet-based exhibition includes all of the imagery, video and audio needed to navigate through Weiwei's recently-displayed catalog.

You don't need any extra tech to make your virtual visit either, as Ai Weiwei 360 is available through a browser on your phone, tablet or computer. If you happen to have a Google Cardboard or Gear VR headset lying around, though, you can take advantage of "photorealistic stereoscopic 3D," a first for an art exhibit according to RA. The virtual showcase will be available online through November 20th.
