BEIJING, June 22 (Xinhua) -- An exhibition offering viewers an immersive experience of Vincent Van Gogh's famous paintings opened to the public on Saturday at the National Museum of China in Beijing.
Featuring more than 200 licensed holographic video images of the Post-Impressionist art genius, the exhibition, which will run until Sept. 22, reconstructs his artwork using 360-degree holographic panoramic ultra-high-definition laser projection equipment and VR realistic virtual reality technology.
Titled "Fantasy of The Inner World," the exhibition brings Van Gogh's paintings to life, projecting them on the walls, ceilings and floors of a former foundry, accompanied by music.
Immersed in the environment of his canvases famed for their rich palette, viewers find themselves standing on moving images of Sunflowers; on a narrow pathway leading to The Cafe Terrace at Night; counting stars in The Starry Night.
