我做这个项目的原因是,在2019年的暑假,我去敦煌莫高窟观赏了敦煌壁画,我被深深的震撼了。我认为敦煌壁画艺术以其形式上的和谐,色彩上的搭配,构图上的圆满和布局上的桥沟等,使不同的艺术类型彼此融合,并相互补充,在整体效果上形成了一种气象万千,形式完美的和谐场景。它为中华艺术和人类文化建立了和谐美的典范。在我进入敦煌莫高窟的时候,我被告知不能拍照,因为洞穴中很多壁画已经氧化。我希望能做点什么,让国内外的人都有机会感受到中华文明的魅力。

 

飞天是敦煌壁画中最经典的元素之一,每个朝代的飞天都有她的特点。在这个项目中我选择用6个不同朝代的飞天制作了一个长卷轴,就好想两千年的时光都汇聚在这个长卷轴上。同时,我将其与AR技术结合在一起。当您使用手机或iPad扫描其中一个飞天时时,屏幕上将显示飞天动画。飞天已有数千年的历史,每个朝代都有自己的特色,反映了当时的文化。

 

I chose to make a long scroll including the flying dynasties of each dynasty. At the same time, I combined this with AR technology. When you use your mobile phone or iPad to scan this long volume, a clear, colorful flying animation will appear. Because the flying sky in the cave has been oxidized, it is difficult to see what it looks like, so I repainted this flying sky. The flying apsaras run through thousands of years, and each dynasty has its own characteristics, which can reflect the culture at that time. I catch the characteristics of each dynasty flying apsaras so that when people see the real Mogao Grottoes, they can judge which dynasty  the mural belongs to.
