Arash Akbari is a transdisciplinary artist, based in Tehran, Iran. His interest in dynamic art systems, human perception, nonlinear narrative, and the co-existence between physical and digital worlds compelled him to explore the fields of generative systems, interaction design, immersive technologies, and real-time processing. With a critical mindset toward the dominant paradigm of technology, he examines the counternarratives in which computational processes, interactive cybernetic systems, and their emergent behaviors can evoke concepts, ideas, and questions as well as social and emotional responses and impacts. Akbari directs his experimental practices into audio-visual performances and installations, interactive software, and multisensory experiences. His music compositions investigate experimental approaches to sound generation, field recordings, acoustic instrumentation, digital synthesis, DSP, and noise to create immersive sonic environments that explore the agency of autonomous systems, audification, indeterminacy, memory, and the perception of time and space. His work has been presented in different festivals and exhibitions around the world, such as DOK Neuland, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Athens Digital Arts Festival, Geneva International Film Festival, ARS Electronica, Recto VRso Festival, Mutek Forum, Simultan Festival, Uncloud Festival, New Media Fest, 3D Web Fest, Lacuna Festival, Videofenster, and Graphical Web Conference among numerous others.
