Projects Narrative

    Digital Heritage Archive is the team-based, collaborative research project to revitalize, reconnect, and reenergize the tangible/intangible heritage conservation through the digital platform. It utilizes digital documentation, A.I. analysis, GIS (Geographic Information System) mapping, Mixed Reality, digital annotation, and crowdsourcing to document, safeguard, and disseminate on the open-access platform. Digital Heritage Archive further integrates the tangible and built heritage documentation to connect with the narrative and the messaging of cultural heritage conservation in order to benefit the cross-disciplinary researches. With sustainable supports, the project will facilitate the project framework to the students and users in rural areas and extend collaborative opportunities to conduct workshops and training sessions for scholars and institutions with limited cyberinfrastructure.

Surakarta  | Candi Sukuh | Garuda

Description

“Dating to the 1430s, Candi Sukuh is located in eastern Java, on Mount Lawu, once sacred for ancestor and spirit worship and fertility cults. The site comprises several terraces and stone pyramid with reliefs and statues, some of which are sexually explicit. The temple is also unusual because it emphasies the character Bima, who figures in shadow puppet theatre, and the sacred mythical bird Garuda.”

Surakarta  | Candi Sukuh | Gamelan relief

Description

    “Built near the beginning of the ninth century, Borobudur, with a square base measuring 123 by 123 metres and height of 34.5 metres, is the largest Buddhist structure ever constructed. …Borobudur is a stepped pyramid structure built in three tiers. A square base supports the structure. The second tier consists of five square terraces. Three circular platforms, the up most topped by a stupa, make up the third tier. Four axial stairways provide access between the levels on each side. A staggering five kilometres of bas reliefs depicting Buddhist themes adorn the first five terraces, while the circular terraces have seventy-two openwork stupas - each containing a Buddha. The entire monument appears to symbolise a mandala corresponding to the conception of the Buddhist universe, which is divided into three spheres of existence.”

TEMPLES IN KYOTO 

Re-Imagining and Mapping

Urban space nowadays is fragmented geographically and ideologically. Renovation and profit concern challenge the memories within. From ancient cities and their grid systems, analysis of the spirituality of the architecture, statues, graphics and calligraphy hence begins. The linkage of To-Ji Temple and Kyoto will provide a sustainable module for the future of urban planning.

重新想像詩意棲居思維

當代都會空間已因為地理及意識形態的分割,而支離破碎。都會的歷史脈絡,亦因為更新及利益考量而消散。經由古都格盤狀都市規劃,藉以分析精神性對於建築及城市規劃、 造型、圖像及文字的綜合影響力;為未來都會的可持續性規劃,提供參考。

山西高平開化寺大雄寶殿

中國河南省洛陽市龍門石窟奉先寺造像

北京大學考古虛擬仿真實驗教學中心實地調研虛擬現實示意圖

文獻摘錄

    西壁根據《大方便佛報恩經》所繪變相,主要包括太子本生、忍辱太子、華色比丘尼、轉輪王舍身供佛、善事太子本生、光明王本生經變。不同於東壁構圖,西北壁采用了敘事式布局,描述了釋迦牟尼佛為法獻身、播種福田的種種善行。此標注為華色比丘尼情節,反映了佛教不斷完善自身教義、向普羅大眾推廣佛法的這種努力。

    移步北壁繼續觀賞。觀世音法會所營造的伎樂歌舞場面之浩大華麗,令人嘆為觀止。外貌秀麗的樂伎交腳而坐、排列成行,笛子、琵琶、箜篌、笙等各種樂器一應俱全,彈奏自如;婀娜的舞伎位於樂隊中央,翩翩起舞,喜樂的氛圍洋溢在畫面的每一個角落,表現出了妙音眾出、自由自在的佛國世界的美好。

    東璧四組圖像皆采用對稱式布局,釋迦牟尼佛居中結跏趺坐於蓮台之上,弟子、脅侍菩薩、諸菩薩、護法金剛環伺左右。佛像從外物走向內心,注重個性化的情感意緒,仔細觀察牆上的壁畫會發現,佛、菩薩因更具人類的外形而易於讓人感覺親近,表現出細膩秀婉的特質和纖細柔和的審美意識

中國四川省安岳毗盧洞普陀落迦觀音像實地調研點雲示意圖。

文獻摘錄

”⋯⋯即使在宋代的石窟雕刻中,觀音經變相的主尊也多為坐在岩石上的普陀落迦觀音,其左足垂下,右腳放在岩石座上,頭略下傾,姿勢安閒自在,身後尚有數竿修竹。這尊觀音不再高不可攀,遙不可及,全作散發著濃郁的「人」的氣息。其髮髻高聳,上身裸露,僅著天衣。五官娟秀,垂目而望,表情嫻靜溫和,多了一份女性秀麗的韻致。這種既不失菩薩的莊重,又富有人世間生活情感的作品,正是宋代佛教造像的傑出成就。“
