During Chunming Zheng’s Movement Lab residency, they have combined documentary and VR technology. Chunming’s installation focuses on the living experience of vision-impaired people, featuring their own life story and oral history interview clips. The VR experience presented is designed to reproduce the world through Chunming’s eyes and allow the audience to experience life with limited visions.

Chunming Zheng is a current student of the Oral History Master of Arts program at Columbia. With her deep love for oral history and genuine interest in art, she hopes to bridge the two things together in her future projects. She believes that the voices and images of the ones who lived it has the incomparable power of sincerity. And artistic approaches will welcome a broader audience and inspire lasting contemplation. She is currently working on an oral history project focusing on disability studies. Chunming is thrilled to join the Movement Lab and explore the possibilities to deliver it with VR technology.
