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.
