connecting dots

Ramin works between film, experimental video pieces, photography, fine art, audiovisual performance, print- and webdesign. From an early age their work has drawn from the inspiration of being around people as well as nature. This interest has translated into a very collaborative approach to projects.

In 2014 they founded the trans-media project, under which they self-published their first book “Black Magic Baby Jesus”. In 2020 they were involved in the release of “Still Burning” by co-directing two documentary films and layouting two 150+ page informative books on the global hard-coal infrastructure.

Over the years they have worked for clients such as the Royal Opera House, Damien Rice, Transgressive Records, Client Earth, Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln, s t a r g a z e,, Klimaallianz, PEOPLE Festival, Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, Europe Beyond Coal, Stay Grounded, HEAL, Eldorado Experience/Folch Media, Michelberger Hotel and Zentrum für Zeitgenössischen Tanz Köln.
