Nadalian: River Art

An interview by John K. GRANDE

Nadalian is an Iranian sculptor whose life's work involves engendering respect for living creatures and the natural environment. To achieve this, besides living with nature himself, he established sculpture grounds in a peaceful environment in natural surroundings. Water is a living element that contributes to his sculptures, and many of the symbols he engraves and sculpts are derived from ancient mythology and the rituals of pre-Islamic civilizations. more

Dialogue between Lynette Wallworth and Ahmad Nadalian

Discussion was in English and translated in Persian.    

Lynette Wallworth, Australian new media artist is currently staying and working at Paradise International Center in Poloor. An Australia Council for the Arts Fellow of New Media Arts, she creates installation environments that are reliant on activation by the participant/viewer. 



'Wallworth's work is about.....relationships between ourselves and our environments, about how we are made up of our physical and biological environment even as we re-make the world through our activities......... technology is used for glimpsing the hidden intricacies of human immersion in the wide, complex world.'

Ross Gibson, Pol Oxygen Magazine Issue Nine June 2004
