Abstract

An "augmented reality" multimedia project is realized by Su-hui LIN, investigator coming from Taiwan, Docteur en Histoire de l'art de l'Université Paris-Sorbonne(Paris IV). The goal is to transform the traditional hand puppet show of Taiwan into a new stage. In first phase, contemporary Taiwanese artists will be invited to collaborate with this project. Enabling to present the historical story through out the VR environment, some 3D hand puppet models will be created through VR4MAX software. The audiences are allowed to interact with the digital content by waving their hand or moving their body. 3D, AR (augmented reality) and VR technology are utilized in this project, the investigator hopes to bring up audience's attention and experiencing traditional folk art in a new way. Finally, this project will be presented by projecting the content onto the inner or outer wall of one Taiwan historical building. Under the augmented reality system, the traditional folk art of Taiwan will be illustrated in a more interesting way. This kind of demonstration will give Taiwanese audience some new thought, not only skinning in the dream of being "the computer kingdom" but also cherishing the root of the culture of Taiwan.
