Christie and Wincomn Technology Development Provide Projection Mapping for Longmen Grottoes

Christie announced recently that they along with Wincomn Technology Development have helped restore the essence of ancient art at Longmen Grottoes. This was made possible with the help of projection mapping technology. The Grottoes are one of China’s most revered cave shrines. It has been carved with Buddhist sculptures that earned its recognition as a UNESCO heritage site. Projection mapping technology allows an uneven surface to become a screen and an outline for the images displayed. Projection mapping is a technology that sees prevalent applications in making a still object lively using multimedia contents. Christie is honored to be awarded the important task of rejuvenating the Longmen Grottoes,” said Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific. “Due to natural and man-made ruin over more than 1500 years, the Longmen Grottoes have lost some of its radiance, making it a challenge to restore its grandeur, especially on the altered surfaces. However, our experience in restoring the grandeur of the ancient site of the Yungang Grottoes positioned us favorably to be chosen to help restore the historical, cultural and religious significance of the Longmen Grottoes. We hope it will immerse and mesmerize visitors in the lively art made possible through the projection mapping offered by Christie’s innovative visual technology.”
