Fancy art gallery and a garden

sunny 86 °F

Today was my day off in the middle of the week and I went to Nanjing to the Deji art gallery. This is the exit of the subway.

Of course then, I got lost in a mall. I did not know that the art gallery was on the 8th floor of this mall.

When you walk in there is a wall full of little figurines, that were based on the scroll that the whole exhibit was based on:

The scroll on the side is a replica of a real old one. Then the digital replica on the wall is a giant walk-through version of it. They give you a bracelet to wear that syncs with your phone and you can choose an avatar and actually walk through the scroll painting. If I could read Chinese I would also be able to talk to the people that meet me in the digital mural. But oh well.

The entrance had a lot of crazy sculptures:

There was an exhibit on birds, which was really amazing:

Later, I went to "Zhanyuan" literally translated to "looking forward to" garden. Nothing to report here, just a garden, all followers of my blog would know that I'm not a big fan of gardens.
