“Peach Blossom Spring” in 2011 Taiwan International Cultural and Creative Industry Expo11.11.18
In the 2011 Taiwan International Cultural and Creative Industry Expo which was held in last September, one of the most attracted exhibition is the digital art Peach Blossom Spring based on the poem by ancient Chinese poet Tao Yuanming. Displayed are interactive works such as a piece in which the world of Shangri-La is projected onto the entire wall. When a guest uses a fan to direct air towards the projected image, the fog clears, flowers start to bloom, and people come out from the houses.
This exhibition was produced by Bright Ideas Design which is researching new ways of displaying the permanent collection at the National Palace Museum with digital technoloby.
These are digital peach blossoms. If you touch them, you can hear mystic sounds with holy light.
And the collaboration with modern dances.
This year, Taiwan is celebrating its centennial as a nation, and there’s a growing trend to reexamine its own identity. The expo was filled with diverse exhibits as if to emphasize the fact there’s more than just a single methodology involved in fusing culture with creativity.
