Xiang Rui is the Chinese traditional symbolism system and it’s ranking order that was used in the Forbidden City in the past, like on jade ware, textile patterns, furnitures, architecture, and paintings etc. In order to intuitively communicate this order we implemented a vertical scroll that illustrate a journey from heaven to ocean, through fluid interaction it de-codes the meaning of each symbol and series of antique collections where it was implemented. During the process if iPad is flipped 90 degrees it shows the map where is item is displayed in the Forbidden City. A little DIY game allows users to re-compose their own Xiang Rui and share with friends through social network.
