DOLCE WANG | BIO
Named after a musical term, Dolce Wang spent her youth studying Haydn, Brahms, and Elgar as well as venturing through the Buffalo Bayou in Houston, Texas. She wondered what would be at the end of Interstate 10, so she followed it West, finding herself at the University of Southern California where she studied Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Cinematic Arts. While at USC, Dolce was both an ARCS and WiSE Scholar, conducting research in the Materials Science Department, and later became a guest faculty at CalArts’ school of Music Technology.
Fueled by an insatiable exploration of the human story, Dolce now devotes her time to finding innovative ways to incorporate her interdisciplinary background in various fields including music, film, live shows, and interactive/new media installations.
Dolce has nearly two decades of experience in the entertainment industry, which includes many years at Walt Disney Imagineering as a Creative Director and Principal R&D Inventor where she was awarded 2 US patents, building prototypes as well as developing attractions for Disney theme parks worldwide. She is also currently serving as Executive Creative Director at MoonShine Animation, as well as the former Chief Creative Officer of Fantasy Works Interactive.
Dolce is also the founder of the Vox Photo Project, where she teaches photography as a means of bringing voice to underserved communities around the world.
She is now an independent artist, performing and composing music, directing and designing installations, and providing creative consulting.
If you can't reach her, she's probably busy creating something... or on an island swimming with sea turtles.
