BYMA is the alter-ego of artist Armaghan Fatemi, collaborating with her partner Michael Elsdörfer in the web3 space.
Armaghan is a conceptual artist who has worked across a variety of media. She is particularly passionate about textiles, and has recently focused on traditional carpet weaving techniques from the country of her birth, Iran. “Invisible Hands”, her installation and documentary exploring the labor conditions of the production of these carpets were part of a recent exhibition at Quad Gallery in Derby.
Michael is a software developer who tired of funneling bytes in and out of databases, and found a welcome reprieve in creative coding.
They both live in London. Combining their passions for the arts and technology, they are interested in generative art, dynamic NFTs, and art that employs meaningful smart contract mechanisms.
