SYSNMH Exhibition: Stitches of Love – Hidden Blessings in Children’s Clothing & Accessories

Logo Vertical

Stitches of Love — Hidden Blessings in Children’s Clothing and Accessories is a special exhibition co-presented by Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH) and the Memorial Museum of Generalissimo Sun Yat-sen’s Mansion from Guangzhou, China.

This exhibition aims to highlight the parental love and concern encapsulated in children’s clothing and accessories of the Chinese culture, and features close to 100 clothing and accessory items from the late Qing to early Republican period.

Ascend is commissioned to provide three multimedia mechanisms, allowing visitors to discover more about the richness of the Chinese language, heritage, and values through the comprehensive exhibits.

The first, Boys at Play, allows visitors to explore the intricate stitches, scenes and stories depicted on the “Hundred Boys at Play” tapestry. They also get to virtually feel and touch the artefacts through the interactive screen.

The experience continues with our customised Selfie/Photo Booth for visitors to personalise photographs taken with stickers inspired by the artefacts.


To cater for the younger crowd, we have designed and developed an interactive application that visitors can colour and personalise their own tailor-made avatar. Not forgetting to mention that the visitors can see their customized avatar comes to live on the bigger screen.

Ascend Com’s Smart Pop-up Store – Bringing Retail to Life


Ascend Com is delighted to partner with Kingsmen Project Pte Ltd, to develop Robinsons the Heeren first ever smart retail pop-up store aimed at providing retailers with analytics in order to optimise their product offerings and bringing retail to life.

The smart pop-up retail space is embedded with in-store analytics hardware and software, allowing store and merchandise concentration to be tracked daily. Through media sensors, the footfall and kinetic map of a customer’s movement are captured daily and then insightful data is generated, enabling brand merchants to effectively offer relevant additional products or content offerings based on the data they gathered.

Using smart pop-up store (i.e. retail analytics), brands within Robinsons are empowered to engage their customers in a more unique, personalised way beyond the traditional departmental store. For instance, Robinsons the Heeren can reformat visual merchandise displays after identifying their main target group for various promotion campaigns etc.

At Ascend Com, we believe that the greatest success is always achieved by brands’ or retailers’ who have done their homework through constant consumer traffic and behaviour monitoring. Fret not, we are here to help you to get the right information to the right people at the right time! Contact us now at!

Late Dr. Sun Yat Sen & His Family Exhibition

A special exhibition on Dr. Sun Yat Sen and his family was recently taken place at Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall.


We were tasked to provide a few interactive displays featuring late Dr. Sun Yat Sen and his family. In honour of the contribution of Dr. Sun Yat Sen and his family, the interactive are designed to showcase their background as well as their strong family ties. Meanwhile, it aims to keep the younger generations engaged and appealed to learn more about Dr. Sun Yat Sen by incorporating interactive technology into the exhibition.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen’s family tree – this serves as an introduction panel for the guests to find out more on each and every family member of Sun Yat Sen. The information is available in both Chinese and English.

A family tree mini quiz has also been installed in the exhibition, allowing visitors to explore and understand the relationship between one-self and other family members. One of the highlights of this interactive is that the featured family members on screen are dressed in accordance to the characters lived – the early settlers wore plain clothes in older days while the younger gens wear fashion clothing. We are hoping that such treatment will appeal to the youngsters and enable them to relate to the family tree easily.

We have also developed a farming game that caters for the children and primary school students. The background of Dr. Sun Yat Sen where he grew up in a farming village inspired us to create this game. We wish to educate the children on the process of farming and raising poultry in the olden days. For instance, the children get the chance to learn about the farming information such as production period and growing tips through the game besides having fun.

All in all, “Dr. Sun Yat Sen and His Family” exhibition was a successful one that has gathered a warm response from publics. Ascend is honoured to have had the opportunity to work with Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall and Gallagher & Associates Asia to succeed the event.
