Arma Yari is an Iranian-born Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist. She received her B.F.A in Photography from OCAD University and is currently a Visual Art MFA candidate at York University. Arma’s approach is based on blending disciplines of art, technology and engineering, and the incorporation of both social issues, philosophical theories and scientific methodologies that revolve around the notions of perception and reality. She is frequently interested in creating immersive spaces that lead a momentary expansion of consciousness, which allows one to recapture a sense of wonder, through adopting temporary freedom from our habitual perceptions and culturally-biased assumptions about being in the world.
