Omschrijving werk

Erfan Abdi (1983 – Tehran) is an artist, designer, and performer based in The Hague since 2009. He graduated from the Masters program at the Artscience Interfaculty, Royal Conservatoire The Hague in 2011, and holds a Bachelor’s degree in graphic design from the University of Tehran (2006). Erfan’s creative practice includes electronic music, video art, computer programming, and physical computing. He takes advantage of the possibilities offered by DIY technology, and constructs his instruments from found or re-purposed material, seeking new ways of relating to the world of production and consumption. He researches the concept of "active perception" in the context of performing arts, and the interactions between performer, instrument and audience. Looking for new ways to express the abstract, he creates spaces of simultaneous stimuli, and exposes the "agential role" as well as the "phenomenal quality" of the performer in intra-action with instrument, stage and the audience.
