art + science
I enjoy art+science collaborations and making music in my spare time.
Over the years I have had the fortune of collaborating with exceptional artists. I've also served on the jury of TADAEX (Tehran annual digital art exhibition) for the past couple of years. In most art projects I have served as a scientific consultant, vocalist/narrator, or writer. We've displayed, published on, and held panels about our work - among other places - at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin, Peggy Guggenheim museum in Venice, Lauba in Zagreb, Parson's the new school for design in NYC, Radial System V in Berlin, and Instiute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in London. Below is a selection.
