Amir Baradaran

Art-Based Creative Research Associate at Columbia University


Amir Baradaran is a New York based Iranian-Canadian ARtificial artist. As the Creative Research Associate at Columbia University, Computer Graphics and User Interfaces Lab, Baradaran’s praxis focuses on the {AR}ticulation of visual vocabularies that use Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies around notions of interactivity, storytelling, po{AI}try, data-mining, failed utopias, infiltration, identity, body, and the ephemeral. Baradaran is a TEDx speaker, a member of Columbia University Digital Storytelling Lab, and the recipient of the Knight Foundation Art Award, Canada Council for the Arts New-Chapter/150th Anniversary Prize, International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality prize, UC Berkeley Artist Residency (from Center for Critical Theory, New Media, Race and Gender Studies) and Morgan Stanley Pulse Art Fair grant. Reviews include Oxford University Press, Art in America, New York Observer, ARTNET, National Public Radio, BBC, Forbes, Euro-News, and L'Actualité. ARTINFO described his public-art, Transient (installed in 6,300 NYC taxicabs, 1.5M viewers), as “one of the most interesting urban interventions.” He is currently working on a large-scale interactive storytelling public ARt installation in Florida & Canada.
