Dr. Chen integrates the concepts of 3D visualization, GIS mapping, and cultural data sculpting into digital heritage imaging. Dr. Chen hosts digital heritage forums at SIGGRAPH Asia and invites interdisciplinary experts (museum content, architecture, urban planning, curation, and aesthetics) for sharing.


In 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 No.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. Chen 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. To push the boundary, Chen utilizes GIS mapping and Extended Reality(XR) to integrate the heritage data into more comprehensive digital narrative.
