Yas Nik Khoshgrudi is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto. She completed her
Bachelor of Painting at Tehran University of Art. Her artworks intend to explore the
relationship between digital experiences and physically lived experiences as inseparable
notions, and how they affect each other’s perceptions in a parallel way. They invoke
feelings of nostalgia within the physical reality and virtual immersion. Through her creations,
she focuses on self-awareness through digital experiences, and studies our receptivity
toward the cyberspaces as a new generated area which invites us into new understandings
of ourselves beyond the ones we have had before in non-virtual spaces.
She intends to imagine a state in which the lived experience comes from both a virtual
space and real life. The primary conception that she follows is that the core of our psychic
life takes place in virtual reality, where each of us is a subject of ‘imagination’.
