Margaret Dolinsky researches, designs, and creates for the CAVE Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE). She investigates visual metaphors for navigation and guiding participants’ roles in completing an art experience in a virtual environment. She teaches 3-D computer graphic and CAVE development. Her own artwork concentrates on collaborative CAVE environments where two or more CAVEs are networked together using the high-speed bandwidth of the next generation research network. Her CAVE artwork is installed at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria, and the ICC Museum in Tokyo, Japan. She has exhibited at Chicago’s Alternate Currents, INET2000, SIGGRAPH, Eurographics, and Virtual Spaces in conjunction with ISEA97. A former virtual reality (VR) artist-in-residence at The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Dolinsky has spoken at the University of Memphis, Tennessee, NeXT 1.0: New Extensions in Technology in Sweden, SIGGRAPH, and for the High Performance Computational Science Committee on Institutional Cooperation in Washington, D.C. Dolinsky’s work also appears in numerous publications, including Discover, Computer Graphics World, US News and World Report, Yahoo Internet Life, ACM’s Computer Graphics, VR Developer’s Journal, and Leonardo. She earned her MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Jawshing Arthur Liou, Associate Professor

Jawshing Arthur Liou creates video installations that depict spaces not probable in reality. Working with both lens-based representation and digital post-production, he aims to transform recognizable imagery into realms only the mind can reach. His source footage ranges from the human body, landscapes, and oil paint, to food items. His photographically realistic digital videos are filled with details, with which Liou responds to the experience of illness, spiritual sanctuary, and the spectacles of life.
Liou’s videos and prints are in numerous public and private collections. Recent acquisitions include the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. His works have traveled internationally, including exhibitions in New York, Chicago, London, Montréal, Houston, and Taipei; and film and media festivals in Sweden, Italy, the Netherlands, and Brazil. Liou is the recipient of the Garry B. Fritz Award from the Society for Photographic Education and the Rising Star Award at Fotofusion, Palm Beach Photographic Centre. Major funding for his work includes Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship, the Research Grant at the College of Arts and Humanity Institute and the New Frontier Grant at Indiana University.
Liou received his M.F.A. in electronic intermedia and photography from the University of Florida. He is currently the Associate Professor and Area Head of Digital Art at Indiana University, Bloomington.
