Bring history alive: the flying Apsara of the Mogao Caves

Master of Design

This Master of Design research project focuses on visualisation and digital storytelling with regard to educating tourists about the ancient history and cultural evolution of the flying Apsara of the Mogao Caves. Record visitor numbers to these ancient caves in the Dunhuang province of China are gravely threatening this historic site. By employing a visualisation framework and digital story-telling format, I pose Bring history alive as a solution to this problem, as well as an accessible framework for other designers involved in digital heritage.
