"Riding the Currents of History-Four Thousand Years of Civilization and Technology"

A special exhibition entitled "Riding the Currents of History-Four Thousand Years of Civilization and Technology" now tours to National Science and Technology Museum at Kaohsiung. The exhibition is one of the events being held in celebration of the 80th anniversary of Academia Sinica (AS) last year.
The exhibition depicts the ways in which humans have been storing and passing down information over the centuries, starting with oral communication and culminating with today's Internet era. Combining historical artifacts with multimedia exhibits, this special exhibition is the result of collaboration between the Institute of History and Philology, the AS branch of the National Digital Archives Project, the AS Computing Center, the Graduate Institute of Networking and Multimedia at National Taiwan University, and Axis 3D Technology Incorporated.
Among the exhibits are computer animations of three-thousand-year-old Shang Dynasty chariots, a "magic crystal ball" showing a clay pig figurine from Taipei County's Shisanhang archeological site, as well as more traditional exhibits such as 300 to 400-year-old Qing Dynasty imperial documents.
The Institute of History and Philology, established in 1928, was the first institute of Academia Sinica. Over the years it has accumulated a wealth of archaeological and historical artifacts.
Over the past seven years, the Institute of History and Philology has been working as the major institution implementing the National Digital Archives Project. Many important historical and cultural relics have been digitized using innovative forms of media and methods of preservation based on academic research. It is hoped that the exhibition of the achievements of these projects will enhance the general public's understanding of the humanities and social sciences in Taiwan.
