“Exquisite Golden Dragon – Decode of the Traditional Architectural Painting” is the first digital art in the series of “Apprentice in the Forbidden City Digital World.” The digital art reveals the remarkable restoration techniques of color painting in architectural heritage of the Forbidden City. Through the interactions between the physical and digital worlds, the Forbidden City’s Hall of Mental Cultivation is completely restored in the digital world. Audiences can also learn about the history behind the cultural relics, complete virtual restoration tasks and share their restoration work with friends.
Through the “Digital Cat” App powered by the SenseMARS platform, audiences can enter the digital world by touching the NFC chip embedded in the digital art with a mobile phone or a tablet. The virtual “Yangxin Palace” in Forbidden City immediately unfolds to audiences where they can then repaint, color and restore the cultural relics under the guidance of the digital master, creating a seamlessly blending of reality with the virtual world.
