About Marjan Moghaddam

Marjan Moghaddam uses digital technology such as computer animation, 3D modeling, and texture mapping in prints, videos, and installations. In her most well-known works, the Iranian-born, Brooklyn-based artist builds three-dimensional characters and environments that resemble the landscapes of video games or virtual reality—as a means to comment on the politics of innovation, communication, and warfare. Moghaddam’s more abstract compositions recall sound waves or energy fields, and embody her artistic impetus, “to achieve the sublime in art with computer-based tools,” as she says.
