The week of September 9 to 13, 2019, Chen Wang was our Electronic Media & Film AIR. During her residency Chen researched possible new production approaches for her work in video and sound. Chen worked with real-time processing including alpha transparency techniques which require less processing that Chroma Key. She also worked with VR modeling and texturing and tried out VR texture mapping with new Expanded Media Faculty, Eric Souther. In the IEA studio Chen worked with audio and edited a WIP version of her video The Sin Park. which was exhibited on the TSI / Harland Snodgrass Media Gallery. Lastly Wang tested some of her videos in the Immersive Gallery experiencing movement and intensity of her projects when projected at full-room scale.
