Chun Wang is an engineer-designer-artist based in New York.


Hello, it’s nice to meet you, albeit virtually. I’m a Web technologist, designer, artist, and curator. I’m passionate about bringing my technical expertise, design mindset, and aesthetic sensibility into crafting thoughtful experiences that help people understand the world on a deeper level.

In my creative studio practice, I’m broadly interested in exploring the use of digital technology in making interactive data archives, visualizations and experiences to facilitate public engagement with art, culture and history. I worked as a researcher at the Center for Open Science on Open Science Framework, a Web platform that publishes free-access scientific research data. In this year-long effort, I developed a socio-technical thesis to articulate the incentive structure of participation in the open science culture and the surrounding technical infrastructure. Since the early 2020 I created and curated the site IMMEMORY: on COVID-19, a digital archive of creative and thoughtful responses to the evolving pandemic crisis from around the world. I helped launch Jilu Commune, a website dedicated to sharing carefully curated knowledge and tools to help China-based nonfiction filmmakers network and grow professionally. I was the Web Ninja for CODAME, a non-profit curating art + tech workshops, and I deviced, an interface that encourages audience engagement with artworks in museum settings. Currently I am working part-time as a creative engineer, designer and researcher at Harvard CAMLab, an interdisciplinary studio producing and curating works at the intersection between humanistic research and creative media practice.

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from University of Virginia, and a master’s degree in Computer Science from Stanford University, where I also received my training in Studio Art.
