Shirin Kouladjie

“Days of my life”
Archived visual diary accounts by Shirin Kouladjie which exude an intuitive and playful intimacy. As you journey through the collection of pages, static images, moving images, dates, times and moments; you get the sense that images are a platform for communicating what cannot be said by words alone. Shirin deconstructs information and visuals offered to her by her surroundings in her web creations, which become a materialization of her nostalgia for childhood and a rejection of the idealized precepts of perfection.


With a varied portfolio, Shirin Kouladjie has exhibited her art at shows worldwide. Since 1998, Shirin has almost wholly embraced interactive/web art. She has developed various websites including 5hirin.com, n3xt.com, and photomontage.com.

“Powering Up/Powering Down” is sponsored in part by the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts (UCIRA), the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA), and the UC San Diego Department of Music in connection with the departments of Visual Arts, Music, and Literature at UCSD along with the UC Riverside and Los Angeles campuses.
