Artists Statement

W3FI is an immersive and interactive installation fusing the digital and the physical, inspiring viewers to consider how our digital selves interact with one another in our increasingly connected world.

  • Laleh Mehran & Christopher Coleman, University of Denver, USA. Chris’ research interests include control systems, chaos and order, digital interaction, physical interaction, borders, animation, appropriation, technological decay, art as activism, audio/video manipulation, systems in nature, and object creation. Laleh constructs elaborate artworks focused on complex intersections between politics, religion, and science. The progeny of Iranian scientists, Mehran’s relationship to these issues is necessarily complex.  du.edu/ahss/edp/faculty   denverpost.com/2014/03/20/laleh-mehran-and-chris-coleman-push-art-and-each-other-forward
