Sala Wong is a New Media artist whose work manifests in digital media, installation, sculpture, wearable art, computer-controlled environments, and locative media. Her large-scale multimedia installations explore real and virtual spaces through augmentation. Wong's most recent works investigate issues of diversity by means of documentation and intervention in public urban spaces. Her research concerns the interaction of spaces and everyday life. She produces conceptually oriented art works that evaluate social, political and cultural issues by distilling the complexity of contemporary life into concise yet open-ended aesthetic experiences. Indeterminacy, site-specificity, interaction, process, participation and experience all play a part in her artistic practice. 

Wong has been invited to produce art and present workshops at prestigious residencies, museums and cultural centers internationally, including ISEA (the International Symposium on Electronic Art), SIGGRAPH Asia, The British Council, Onassis Cultural Centre, The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, The Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory, and ACM CHI: Human Factors in Computing Systems. She is Professor of Digital Art and Director of the Media Realization Center at Indiana State University.
