This project is to complete research into the cultural heritage of Tai O Fishing Village and to conduct evaluative research into the effectiveness of virtual representations in cultural heritage conservation. This research will use arts-informed hybrid practice which combines methods from contemporary animation and creative media, such as 3D computer modeling, animation and real-time technology, with ethnographic research methods used by social scientists, such as semi-structured interviews and community-based research. This methodology will be used in order to understand, interpret, and represent the lived experience of residents from Tai Ping Street, in Tai O fishing village, Hong Kong.
The project is also donated by the DRS RICHARD CHARLES & ESTHER YEWPICK LEE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION.
