Along with the application of digital methods to art galleries and exhibitions, media art has recently been at the center of the attention. It has contributed to improving the accessibility of visitors. On the exhibition "Renoir: Scent of a Woman," a lot of sensuous works of Renoir have been recreated with media art and provided unusual experiences to the audience. Instead of a simple exhibition of artworks, cutting-edge digital technologies have been introduced to reinterpret the art pieces. And it has attracted a lot of visitors by introducing an interactive artistic genre which has enabled the audience to feel and experience the beauty of art. Unlike general screens which require walls or props, the development of fog screen has enabled the image projection at any place, without restrictions. Along with the popularization of media art, a lot of technologies including drones have been applied to art. As drones can play a role as an independent character, it can be a great source for the future development of art. We introduce media art, a combination between digital tools and art.
