Jointly created by the Academic Sinica Center for Digital Cultures (ASCDC) and the Museum of the Institute of History and Philology, "AR Roaming in the Museum's Zoo" will be opened from December 12, 2018 to February 27, 2019. The Museum's "zoo" points to the fact that animal motifs dominate objects excavated from the Ruins of Yin: these motifs decorate artifacts, animal bones abound in the archeological sites, and the oracle bones made frequent reference to the game brought back by the kings of Shang civilization. To effectuate virtual roaming proper, the exhibit uses ARKit 2 of iOS to breathe new life into ancient animals such as Jade Elephant, Gu-Shaped Cup, Stone Tiger, and Standing Owl. A story revolving around a Yin-era elephant and her baby will be told through replicas, 3D animation and narratives.
The physical artifacts will be joined by their 3D counterparts to greet visitors at the museum transformed into a virtual zoo.
