The PLAYSPACE is an experimental art gallery that was part of the initial design of the BFA Design department's website, at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

The PLAYSPACE is an experimental digital art gallery that reimagines the traditional gallery experience for a purely digital space. It experiments with new ways of showing artwork by leveraging several unique characteristics of digital space that are simply not available to a traditional gallery experience - such the ability to rotate objects, interact with objects and contain a near infinite number of objects. This gallery allowed users to toggle between viewing constellations of images in 3D space and isolating individual images in a traditional 2D viewing experience.

The Playspace launched in 2008 and was maintained until 2010. It was written in ActionScript 3.0 (Flash) and made extensive use of the Papervision library.
