We are what we imagine

Imagination is a superpower. When imaging ourselves in the world of animation, every one of us has become a superhero. In the Animated Tour, viewers can devote themselves to the characters via different programs, abstract or figurative in terms of visual style, to experience anxiety and frustration all the way to happiness and growth. Getting rid of this disappointing reality, viewers shall continue the “Taiwan Grand Tour” through their imagination. This program consists of four animations: “Go Go Giwas: Sowing Dream Seeds”(Directed by Vick Wang, Yi-Feng Kao), “My grandmother is an Egg”(Directed by Wu-Ching Chang),”Inside”(Directed by Yu-Ting Hsueh), and “The Wayward Kite”(Directed by Yu-Ting Hsueh). A time-limited experience and viewing of this program will be available, while giving viewers a chance to interact with the characters in the exhibitions via the AR interface.
