Entrance is set on one side, and the other side is a large floor-to-ceiling glass window. The infrared sensor embedded in the glass allows visitors to interact with the mechanical arm, creating a connection between visitors and the space. By setting the two different space side by side, the contrast of the real world and digital world has provided visitors with an incredible emotional experience. The central table displays all kinds of lamps, which can be controlled with the switches on the table. The center of the display table is a mechanical arm, which is programmed to demonstrate the disassembly and assembly of the lamp parts. It is also programmed to make human gestures. When a visitor approaches, it dances and reacts to the indoor lights. A direct art experience is added in the traffic flow, turning the passage into an exhibition space for painting, sculpture, and video art. A coffee corner is set up before the passage. The stone material and concrete pillars combine the old and the new design, and emphasis on architectural details and material outlines. The lighting design of the exhibition space can be very challenging, where the colors of the objects need to be presented accurately. Color is important for artwork display. To provide visitors with better visual experience so that they can see clearly, all items are displayed with the highest CRI (color rendering index). To maintain the integrity of the artworks, lamps are also hidden as much as possible on the premise of the optimal visual conditions.
