Dunhuang Mural Special Exhibition
June 9 – August 31 Xuhui Art Museum, Shanghai
For the first time ever, interactive technology that embeds virtual images on physical objects is being employed to display ancient Chinese art.
The exhibition floors of the museum have been transformed into a dynamic virtual Dunhuang cave. A figure on one of the Dunhuang murals was brought to life with modern technology. By using motion capture technology, the two-dimensional frescoes become moving pictures while maintaining the artistic beauty of the line-drawings. Holographic projection technology produces virtual features on physical figures to create an unmatched immersive experience.
The exhibition also includes entertaining and interactive activities to arouse interest of people of different ages in the history of the Chinese civilization.
