Fereshteh received a BA from Oberlin College and lived in Japan for two years before completing her MFA from Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Art. She held teaching positions in media art and theory in Maryland and was the Faculty Fellow in Arts and Civic Engagement at Syracuse University before joining the fulltime faculty at Columbia College Chicago.
