The 21st century is a very perceptual era, the interpretation of happiness and games are highlighted, so interactive space displays are of great significance. In the interactive display space, significant changes are necessitated, driving rapid transformations in display methods. Modern exhibition spaces have shifted from mere listing, explaining, and introducing items to adopting narrative display themes that communicate content and materials in an emotional and vivid manner. This has led to the emergence of a new display method, “displaying the content through stories,” which imbues the experience with fun and interest. The use of narrative techniques in display spaces allows for the simultaneous fulfillment of visitors’ desires to acquire information about the displayed content while offering a more expressive and enjoyable experience. It successfully meets the dual needs of visitors, providing both fun and information at the same time. In addition, it also has the advantage of technology convergence. Through the use of digital media technology, the content of the story can be expanded, allowing visitors to participate in the interactive display, so as to achieve an immersive visiting experience.
