Prof. Chen Wu-Wei has served in broadcast industry as videographer, non-linear video editor as well as motion graphic designer and animator. Chen has also worked in Taiwan, New York, Beijing and Hong Kong as professional and educator. In the recent years, Dr. Chen integrates the concepts of 3D visualisation, interactive info-motion design and digital sculpting into digital heritage contents development. Dr. Chen also hosts digital heritage forum at SIGGRAPH Asia 2016/2017 and invites experts of interdisciplinary areas (museum contents, architecture, urban planning, curation and aesthetics) for sharing. Chen's latest papers are accepted by CIPA (Ottawa) and DCH (Berlin). 


In 2018, during the exhibition "Transference: Images and Archives of Dazu Rock Carvings" curated by Mr. Qin Zhen at the Sichuan Art Academy Museum, Dr. Chen demonstrates the web-based interactive installation of Counting Beads Avalokiteśvara of cave 125 (Beishan area of Dazu Rock Carvings,  960-1127 A.D.) in the form of point cloud visualization; In the same year, Chen also presents the digitization process to the audiences in New York during the “Virtual Journey: Chinese Buddhism Art and Architecture In the Digital Era ” exhibition curated by Ms. Jinyoung Jin at the Charles B. Wang Center; The author further collaborates with art historians and conservators to host Mellon Buddhist Workshop at the FreerSackler Museum in Washington D.C. to share the experiences and conservation/research concepts from the perspective of digital heritage. The smart heritage development of field research, digital documentation, data collection, exhibition, promotion and dissemination gets mature in the process. To push the boundary, further work can be done by utilizing the GIS mapping, AR mobile apps, and Geocinema to integrate the heritage data into more comprehensive digital narrative.
