Minoosh Zomorodinia is an Iranian-born interdisciplinary artist who makes visible the emotional and psychological reflections of her mind’s eye inspired by her environment. Her works often reflect on daily news. She employs walking as a catalyst to reference the power of technology as a colonial structure while negotiating boundaries of land.
Her work reimagines our relationships between nature, land, and technology while addressing transformation of memories into actual physical space absurdly. Zomorodinia has received several awards, residencies, and grants including the Kala Media Fellowship Award, Headlands Center for the Arts, Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists’ Residency, Djerassi Residency, Recology Artist Residency, the Alternative Exposure Award, and California Art Council Grants. Zomorodinia has lectured and exhibited extensively at venues including Stanford University, San Jose State University, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco Arts Commission, Berkeley Art Center, Pori Art Museum, Nevada Museum of Art, and ProARTS. Her work has been featured in the SF Chronicle, Hyperallergic, SFWeekly, KQED, and many other media outlets. She earned her MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute and holds a Masters degree in Graphic Design and BA in Photography from Azad University in Tehran.
