"Pure Land: Inside the Mogao Grottoes at Dunhuang" is an immersive digital experience of a Chinese Buddhist cave. Using 3D modeling, animations, video and recoloring, colorful murals come alive with floating figures, performing musicians and Buddhist sculpture. Visitors step inside a hyper-real tour of one of the world's most important treasures.
"Pure Land" was created by Jeffrey Shaw, dean of the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong (CityU), and developed by ALiVE, an interdisciplinary art research initiative at CityU, in partnership with the Dunhuang Academy and the Friends of Dunhuang Hong Kong. Since 1943, the Dunhuang Academy has carried out many large projects including conservation to restore and consolidate the caves, statues, and murals; digitization of the caves and the relics inside; and multimedia tour presentations for visitors.
