Ali Phi


Ali Phi (b. 1987, Tehran, Iran) is a computer artist and creative technologist with a background in environmental engineering sciences and experimental cinematic arts. The flow of his works is based on programing, generative audiovisual design, interactive media, and immersive environment installations, which depict the relation between geometry, science, light, poetry and their transformations in computer and interaction with humans. Exploring rituals and roots in art, culture, and architecture has affected his creations. To build his futuristic utopia, he takes motifs from the old era of Persia and draws inspiration from the forgotten essence of Iran and Middle Eastern lifestyle. He is the founder of NULLSIGHT, a media arts collective and freelance festival curator of TADAEX since 2014. He has held five solo shows and has performed and exhibited in Ars Electronica, Mutek, Tasmeem Doha, Patchlab, TADAEX, and Tehran Architecture Biennial in Iran, Canada, the USA, Germany, Austria, Poland, Qatar, and the UAE.
