Director Biography – Shirin Maleki
Shirin Maleki is a multimedia visual artist born in Tehran, Iran interested in experimental storytelling. She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2018 where she was able to combine her passion for interdisciplinary fine art by using photography, poetry and animation in the Department of Film, Video, New Media and Animation. Her work often has an implicit connection with nostalgia and Anthropocene invoking a vast range of color and light and sparking ideas about childhood, nature, connection and change. She is interested in the potential of animation as a part of interactive installations to provoke action in the comfort of “unreal” highlighting the difference between real and unreal, real and surreal and their complicated connection with perception and representation.
