Obaid Al Safi

Born in 1991 in Wadi ad-Dawasir and now based in Riyadh, artist Obaid Alsafi works in new media installations, video, and data-generated projects. He takes a systematic approach to his creative process, informed by his training in computer science. He investigates the unseen or invisible aspects of life, tracing the profound impacts of data on the visible environment, physical reality, and collective memory, while also drawing on photography, poetry and Arabic literature.

His precise artworks are generated by these invisible processes. They are formed from his research in artificial intelligence and software, through which he draws attention to the way in which data constitutes a large part of our contemporary world. By visualizing this material, he creates an altered perception of the future of data and helps draw the link between the contemporary computational environment and its everyday physicality.
