Mid-autumn is the harvest season, and abundant crops are nature’s reward for a year’s hard work. The Mid-Autumn Festival, with its iconic full moon, embodies people’s longing for family reunion.
Mid-Autumn Festival is part of the annual cycle, illustrating the concept of “unity of man and nature” from ancient China. It is a celebration of happiness and contentment.
Guided by a fluffy moon bunny, the virtual exhibition goes through various sections including “Encountering the Mid-Autumn Festival”, “Mid-Autumn Festival Customs” and “More to learn about the Mid-Autumn Festival”. Using virtual 3D immersive displays to integrate audiovisual content, games and animation, the exhibit introduces the origin of the Mid-Autumn Festival, folk culture and the time-honored values of family and harmony.
Mid-Autumn Festival originated in China, but is celebrated around the world. We share the moon, the earth and human civilization itself. We wish each other a long and happy life to share the beautiful moonlight, even though we may be miles apart.
