White on White Portrait Series
Stem Link Drive
Movement is an indication of the presence of a living entity. Robots and organic beings share a kind of will to move, whether through autonomy or automation. Machines can be aesthetic objects in themselves, precisely crafted and logically spectacular.
In this kinetic sculpture the movements are programmed with an Arduino controller and commands are sent electronically to the DC motors. By tuning and finding the right settings, equilibriums of movement can be achieved, bringing the piece into balance. Three types of movement have been programmed for this rig: oscillating, pendulum and random.

A film by Anahita Shahamati @anahita.shmti
This film is the result of more than a year of filming and documenting of the painting process. The paintings are from recent years and mostly are for the current exhibition showing at Aaran Projects gallery Tehran.
The filming and interviews are the labor of my lovely wife, Anahita Shahamati, who has been by my side through all of the struggles. She has observed the process first hand and has taken time out of her compact med school schedule to learn editing and assemble this video. She has inspired my interest in human biology and teaches me about the scientific intricacies of the human machine.
