Since 2006 Prof. Kaufmann has been serving as Coordinator and Professor, for the Program of Fine Arts and Computer Graphics, New York Institute of Technology, in the Middle East. First in Amman, Jordan and now in Bahrain, See the page 'Life in the Middle East'.
His artwork and research are influenced by continuing interests in visual design theory, semiotics, post-modern discussions of architecture, and the Eastern European origins of modern art. Design research includes web design, the exploration of the medieval reliquary as a sculptural motif, and photo montages that bridge religious traditions and define the 'digital icon'. Their themes are unabashedly anti-platonist and affirms the inseparable unity of matter and spirit.
