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, Professor
personal Web site
Jawshing Arthur Liou works with photography, video, and electronic imaging to create video installations depicting mental and surreal spaces. The videos do not contain a clear narrative but rather are meditative in nature, allowing time to slow to a ruminative pace, while spatial scales oscillate between the microcosmic and infinitely expansive. Using sources ranging from landscapes to oil paint to the human body, much of Liou’s work is related to Buddhist concepts of impermanence, meditations on nature and spirituality, and coping with the illness of his daughter.
Liou’s videos and prints are featured in exhibitions and collections in the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, and Seoul Museum of Art. Liou is the recipient of Asian Cultural Council Grant, New York, Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship, Indianapolis, and Garry B. Fritz Award from the Society for Photographic Education National Conference, Chicago. International presentations of his work include the New Media Caucus Showcase, College Art Association National Conference, SIGGRAPH conference, European Biennial Conference of the Society for Science, Literature, and the Arts, and Chicago Humanities Festival at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Liou received his M.F.A. in electronic intermedia and photography from the University of Florida. He is currently the Professor and Area Head of Digital Art at Indiana University, Bloomington.
