As a creator of both digital and physical, as well as fine and functional works, Yaazd describes himself as a multi-disciplinary artist. Having grown up in Mumbai, surfing the tidal waves of the internet and its open-source nature, and later maturing in the industrial heart of Chicago’s do-it-yourself scene, he constantly draws inspiration from the two cities and their zeitgeist.
Architecture, video-games and music were integral facets of his upbringing, yet they fall out of their real-world applications and into heterotopias of their own in the objects Yaazd creates. Combining mass fabricated and computer generated objects with hand worked glass is his current oeuvre.
