Half a year later they met again in Frankfurt, Germany for the NODE15 Forum. During their residency in Frankfurt, Amir Bastan and Georg Scherlin developed a series of commissioned collaborative works for NODE15’s exhibition ‘The Future of the Informed Body’.

‘Circular Piece (Square)’ is an audio-visual installation exploring the realms of bodies in space through running. Working in the basis Projektraum for the last two weeks, their performative practice in front of a camera was shown in the same space, drawing attention to the changes and shifts that technology applies to the representation of the human body.

About the artists

Amir Bastan

Tehran, Iran


As a new media-artist with a background in fine arts, Amir Bastan (*1991) explores the conflict between the conscious and the subconscious. His works are in real-time data visualization, generative design, and real-time processing categories.
Amir studied painting at Sooreh Art University in Tehran. The output of his works are generally digital and he concentrates his work on video and video performance. He has exhibited at galleries and museum such as Parkingallery (Tehran), Columbus Museum (Ohio), Pratt Institute (New York).

Georg Scherlin

Berlin, Germany


Georg Scherlin (*1985) is a visual artist based in Berlin. For his work, he’s reflecting observations of everyday situations with notes, recordings, and, if necessary, with his body. His artistic practice is based on re-assembling those impressions into a wide range of media including sculptures and (interactive) video installations, drawings and texts. Using technology and diverse material as the narrational source, he creates moments in which fiction and reality are blurring together

About the artist residency

The TADAEX/NODE Exchange Program was founded in 2014 to establish a personal connection between the media arts scenes in Iran and Germany. It provides a unique opportunity for collaboration in different environments at home and abroad, supports a growing understanding of different artistic approaches and sets the ground for an intercultural reflection on research and creative practice in Iran and Germany.
