The comprehensive and in-depth understanding of cultural relics and cultural and creative products is achieved in various ways. For example, the high-definition pictures of cultural relics, videos, and audios of the story behind the cultural relics by the professional commentators, and delicate cultural and creative products.

 

Meanwhile, a variety of cultural knowledge lectures held by the museum are accessible with online booking. In addition, through the VR lens, one can just feel of being on the scene.

 

1,100 cultural relics will be collected digitally this year

 

From the beginning of this year, Hangzhou Museum is collecting cultural relics in a digital way.


 

There are three machines specially responsible for collecting relics in different materials and shapes in a large room of the North Hall of Hangzhou Museum.

 

An object with three-dimensional modeling can be rotated from all angles after 3D scanning. Moreover, the details of the surface of the object are also displayed very clearly. "This kind of professional 3D scanner scans the cultural relics in an all-round way, and it also realizes three-dimensional printing."

 

Shen Yandong, associate professor of Art College of Zhejiang University of Science and Technology, said that the most difficult materials for collecting is transparent and black ones. They are reflective, thus have very high technical requirements for collection. This time, however, the museum has perfectly completed the collection with exclusive technical methods.

 

Hang Jianping, chairman of Hangzhou Yinmei Technology Co., Ltd., and director of Cultural Heritage and Museum Department of Zhejiang University's Urban and Rural Creative Development Research Center, said that in fact, not every cultural relic in the museum is suitable for the digital collection. For example, lacquerware is easy to be "hurt" as soon as it is put out to light.

 

"Our plan is to complete the HD data collection of more than 1,100 cultural relics in the museum this year." Jin Xiaohang, director of Hangzhou Museum, said that such a large-scale digital collection is rare in Hangzhou and even in Zhejiang.

 

Jin also claimed that the greatest significance of the digital collection is to display cultural relics in an all-round way, making cultural relics "alive" and exposed to the public so that their underlying values can be better understood and admired.
