Rhinoceros are huge and strong but now almost extinct. `White Rhinoceros' is a sculpture that was exhibited in 1993 and now placed in storage. Twenty years after `White Rhinoceros' was first displayed, a team of animation artists and engineers revived this outdated sculpture endowing new meanings, stories, and technologies. `The Journey of a White Rhinoceros', using Augmented Reality technologies, delivered messages to the gallery visitors on the greed and blindness of human being, the ecosystem of the earth, and imminent crises of natural disasters. Two projectors projected videos and animated special effects on the sides of the White Rhinoceros, and one movable large display was employed to show the augmented views on the rhinoceros as a background. `The Journey of a White Rhinoceros' was displayed for four days at a gallery attracting interests of many visitors, especially of young generations.
