Hao Zhou is currently a PhD candidate at UNSW Art & Design. With a background in both science and design as well as experiences in other fields, Hao adopts an inter-disciplinary approach in his research. He is interested in the transforming impacts of new technologies in the contemporary sociocultural context. In his ongoing PhD, he investigates the use of Virtual Reality in the art museum, which seeks to develop an integrated approach to inspect the complex issues involved by drawing on multiple theories and perspectives derived from a central notion of ‘presence’.
