As a new media artist with a fine arts and philosophy background, Amir Bastan (*1991) explores the gap between the conscious and the unconscious. He realises his works by designing narratives through real-time processes.
“The Human Robot Transference” is the centrepiece of his current research, drawing parallels between psychoanalysis theories and human-robot interaction within the context of new media arts.
Alongside his artistic practice, Amir is developing “The Bunraku Project”, a software utilised for real-time control, visualisation and simulation of industrial robots.
Amir is based in Linz-AT, where he is pursuing his PhD and is currently a researcher at Creative Robotics and a lecturer at the Kunstuni Linz.
