Anahita Hekmat (born 1978) is an Iranian new media artist, living and working between Paris and the Bay area. Her body of work includes a wide range of media such as videos, sound, drawings, performances, and interactive set-ups. She works solo and in collaboration with musicians, programmers, and performers to create multidisciplinary multimedia experiences. She hybrids ethnographic methodology and subjective imagination in her work, building a suspended time in which the characters, abstracted of their spatial dimensions, graze the boundaries of documentary and fiction. Hekmat studied painting at Tehran University and New Media at HEAR in Strasbourg, and in Paris at ENSAD and Paris 8 University.
