10 Mixed Reality Artists To Know: 9. Amar C. Bakshi (US)

Amar C. Bakshi

Amar C. Bakshi is an artist whose work focuses on how to integrate technology into environments and across pronounced distance to create new forms of digital-physical public spaces that challenge and subvert existing norms. In particular, he works to connect members of diverse communities who would likely not otherwise meet in intimate environments to create their own meanings. He created the global public art initiative, Portals, in 2014.

As an artist, Amar treats the formation of institutions as, themselves, sites of creation. To explore these practices, Amar launched the Legal Medium. Amar previously worked as a reporter at the Washington Post, an editor at CNN, and as Special Assistant to the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Amar, a Soros Fellow and Truman Scholar, has an AB from Harvard University, a MA from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, and a JD from Yale Law School.
