When Covid hit and we were all ordered to shelter, Durk van der Meer wanted to create a comforting virtual space where people could do just that. The result is a cosy virtual garden, filled with fantastical plants, uploaded to VRchat so that everybody can visit, hang out and chill.

Durk van der Meer is a freelance digital artist based in Groningen, the Netherlands, with a passion for VR. Durk started out as an architectural visualiser and gradually shifted to becoming a virtual world builder, creating levels, characters and other assets for games, animations and installations.
