Marjan Moghaddam is an award-winning digital artist and animator who primarily works in computer graphics (CG) and digital 3D. She is internationally recognised for her original style of figuration that merges the ideals of sculpture and animation. Moghaddam defines this unique approach to the digital embodiment as Chronometric Sculpture. She has a prolific exhibition history that spans four decades, notably exhibiting at the Smithsonian.
Her influential #arthacks concept is an ongoing collection of interventions that have been exhibited on Instagram since 2016. With these interventions, she actively engages in social and political critical discourse, seeking to democratise curation as well as exhibition spaces by visually hacking found footage of art fairs, galleries and museums. Moghaddam lives and works in Brooklyn, where she is a Tenured, Full Professor of CG, Animation and mixed reality (XR) at Long Island University.
