Dr. Sha Xin Wei: Director of the School of Arts, Media and Engineering at Arizona State University

Join us in conversation with Dr. Sha Xin Wei, Founding Director of the Synthesis center at Arizona State University, and founder of the Topological Media Lab at Concordia University. Dr. Sha’s work in Synthesis and his current project, Prototyping Social Forms, explores the intersection of technology, philosophy, and experimentation. Combining ideas from Heraclitus to Artificial Intelligence, Dr. Sha constructs experimental environments that, by curating novel forms of experience, encourage multidisciplinary thought. What are the implications of experiencing the visual field through touch? Controlling weather simulations through bodily movement?

Professor Sha Xin Wei is the director of the School of Arts, Media + Engineering in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. He is also the founder and the director of the Synthesis Center at Arizona State University.
