Iranian writer, activist, and new media artist, Morehshin Allahyari, gives a virtual talk, “The Needed Worlds,” for Brown University.

Morehshin Allahyari uses 3D simulation, sculpture, and digital fabrication as tools to re-figure myth and history. Through archival practices and storytelling, her work weaves together complex counternarratives in opposition to the lasting influence of Western technological colonialism in the context of West Asia. In “The Needed Worlds,” Allahyari uses her research-based art projects to discuss archival methodologies, Digital Colonialism, and historical re-figurations.
