Margaret Dolinsky is Associate Professor of Digital Art at the HR Hope School of Fine Arts, Senior Research Scientist with the Pervasive Technology Institute and Fellow with the Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities at Indiana University in Bloomington.
Dolinsky has been working with virtual environments since 1995, creating interactive art experiences that have been exhibited at SIGGRAPH, Ars Electronica, ICC in Tokyo, and the Walker Art Center. She was commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art to create “Cabinet of Dreams” a VR experience of Chinese antiquities. She has had several exhibits in China, including her piece "Emotable Portraits" which uses facial detection. She designed interactive video for the American Opera Theater’s production “Annunciation + Visitation: Operatic Projections of her sexual insight.” Her research focuses on how interactivity provokes shifts in perception and enhances sensory awareness.

Her work is published in Leonardo, Discover, Computer Graphics World, US News and World Report and ACM's Computer Graphics. Lectures include Tsinghua University (China), Ciber@rts Bilboa (Spain), Sensorial Net (Brazil), BEAP (Australia), and ISEA (France). She received an MFA from University of Illinois at Chicago.
