The exhibition included three walk-in replica constructions of Cave 275, 285 and 320 created to the exact size and appearance of those at Dunhuang. The GRI galleries showcased Buddhist treasures, including over forty manuscripts, paintings on silk, embroideries, and other precious objects on loan from museums in the UK and France. A 3D immersive experience of the interior of Cave 45 was presented in the GRI Lecture Hall. I was the Lead Designer on the project and managed all aspects of the production and installation of the Replica Caves, the GRI Exhibition and the Digital Immersive Experience. I also oversaw the design and production of all exhibition related graphics.
