Ali Phi
New Media Artist, Based in Toronto, Canada.
Founder & Creative Director at Nullsight

Ali Phi (b. 1987, Tehran, Iran) is a computer artist & creative technologist with a background in environmental engineering sciences & experimental cinematic arts.
The flow of his works is based on programming, generative audio-visual design, interactive media & immersive environment installations which depict the relation between geometry, science, light, poetry and their transformations in computer & interaction with humans.
Exploring rituals & roots in art, culture and architecture have affected his creations by taking motifs from the old era of Persia, the forgotten essence of Iran & middle-eastern lifestyle to build his futuristic utopia.
He is the founder of 'NULLSIGHT', a media arts collective and freelance festival curator of ‘TADAEX’ since 2014.
He has performed and exhibited in Ars Electronica, Mutek, Tasmeem Doha, Patchlab, Tadaex & Tehran Architecture Biennial between Iran, Canada, USA, Germany, Austria, Poland, Qatar & UAE.
