About Us
We are Harvard FAS CAMLab.

Integrating humanistic inquiry with cutting-edge technology and design, CAMLab explores innovative, interdisciplinary ways of showcasing art and culture through immersive installations, exhibitions, films, digital publications, and other multimedia forms.

What We Do
CAMLab creates and curates multimedia storytelling.

CAMLab creates and curates forward-looking, experimental work that explores enduring questions of human consciousness. Using cutting-edge multimedia storytelling and multi-sensory technologies, we model cultural and historical experiences that engage and transport participants beyond the here and now, across the continuum of time and space.

Guiding modern audiences through these immersive, imaginative spaces, we enable them to discover and access forms of knowledge that are otherwise impossible.

Our Story
We combine humanistic inquiry with cutting-edge technology and design.

No two CAMLab projects are the same—but each is grounded in a process that incorporates both expansive research and groundbreaking creative practice.

In some instances, digital technology and sensorial techniques breathe new life into an archival record. In others, it’s the archival record that lends form, substance, and nuance to projects that begin as aesthetic concepts.

Founder Story
Eugene Yuejin Wang
汪悦进

Founder and Director

Eugene Y. Wang is the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Professor of Asian Art at Harvard University. A Guggenheim Fellow (2005), he is the art history editor of the Encyclopedia of Buddhism (2004). His extensive publications range from early Chinese art and archeology to modern and contemporary Chinese art and cinema. His book, Shaping the Lotus Sutra: Buddhist Visual Culture in Medieval China (2005), explores Buddhist worldmaking; it received the Sakamoto Nichijin Academic Award from Japan. His current research focuses on cognitive study of art and consciousness as well as biocentric art that integrates visual, biological, and ecological systems.

He is also the founding director of Harvard FAS CAMLab that explores the nexus of cognition, aesthetics, and mindscape. The CAMLab projects he heads explores multimedia storyliving and immersive artistic-cum-spiritual experience, integrating humanistic research and sensorial media practice.

CAMLab Cave
Public Visits

Located at 485 Broadway—just outside Harvard Yard—CAMLab Cave opens following two years of renovation. It serves as a hub of innovative forms of knowledge production, pedagogy, and sensorial media practice.

Beginning October 19, Harvard FAS CAMLab invites our audiences to explore immersive installations that integrate historical research, digital technologies, and multisensory media art. This fall, CAMLab Cave’s Public Visits will feature Cave Dance, a project that harnesses the power of machine learning to recover dances depicted in the medieval Buddhist caves of Dunhuang. The visits also include immersive presentations of episodes from the Embodied Architecture and Shadow Cave projects.

CAMLab Cave Public Visits: Oct 19, 2022 – Dec 16, 2022, Wed, Thu, Fri, 12pm – 6pm
