Can history be digitally recorded and artificially replayed? Can fine arts be created in a virtual reality display? It is maintained that objects can be represented digitally and perceived realistically. The level of reality depends upon the detail of reality reflected in the scene, the sharpness of the image, and the saturation of the color schemes displayed in the scene. This project simulates history through visualization for reflecting a culture of ceremony and the art of craftsmanship. A virtual reality model of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, China is used for an example. Based on the observations, it is certain that information technology can be used to reconstruct history, express humanities, and manifest a new dynamic VR art.
