Since my school ride bus days the pausing moments filled with contemplation have guided my life. A five year old staring out the bus window, thinking philosophical thoughts without knowledge of the world, with a comical look of wonderment; this is the essence of who I am as an artist and a person. A ponderer. A wanderer. An overall inquisitor.
My work is rooted in philosophy and play with a niche in sound and invisible interaction. As a new media artist, designer, improviser and musician, I aim to stimulate thought and reframe elements of our present to better understand our relationship with each other, with the world and with our future both near and far. In form I have combined my background in graphic design, film and performance with nonlinear/linear narrative experiences created through sound, VR, AR, and interactive installations.
As a current MFA Design and Technology candidate at Parsons School of Design, I recently showcased my project Panopticon (interactive binauralsound installation) in the StudentPoster section of IRCAM Pompidou’s 2015 Conference.
I am a creative technologist, visual and interaction designer, electronic musician and artist with a background in electrical engineering from India. A recent graduate from the MFA program in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design, New York.
My work lies at the intersection of art, design, science and philosophy with strong emphasis on the cybernetics. I believe in the beauty of process and exposing that process. Most of my work includes interactive tools and platforms which can then be used to produce interactive and generative art. Art that is realized not as an outcome but the process itself. Giving it a scientific perspective, questioning the development process of its form and purpose of its content.
Some of the resonating themes that influence my work are self-reflection, moments, cognition, empathy, connection, emergence, collaboration and ephemerality. I use technology for digital and physical interactions, narratives, experiences and interfaces. The research and teaching work carried out at Parsons revolves around interaction methodologies, networked systems, generative narratives, interactive music and artificial intelligence. Some of my recent works include Pieces, an exploratory journey through a virtual and networked space as an alternate music-making and visually surreal experience (exhibited at the NYC Media Lab Annual Summit), The Smaller Picture, an audiovisual experience of quantum world through generative music and generatively reconstructed narratives (showcased at SXSW) and Reinterpretations, a concept album with an abstract philosophical narrative around dialectical breakdown of the process of reinterpretation (featured on Electronic Beats and Prosthetic Knowledge).
