Kiran Bhumber is an Indo-Canadian interdisciplinary media artist, audio designer, performer and educator. Her practice considers the mediation of emerging technologies through the body by constructing interactive installations and performances examining social choreography, touch and performativity. As an audio designer, Bhumber’s practice centers around multichannel and spatial arrangements and how the choreography of sound can influence the listeners notion of space, time and narrative. Considering physical and virtual presence, Bhumber co-created Telepresence, a VR 8.2 channel live performance presented by Western Front, and was a composer and sound designer for Tidal Traces, a VR 360 dance film with the National Film Board of Canada. Her interdisciplinary and compositional work has been presented at MUTEK (Japan), The International Symposium of Electronic Art (South Africa, Korea), SXSW, Cannes Film Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, New Interfaces for Musical Expression (Australia, Denmark), Toronto International Electroacoustic Festival and more. Bhumber is a co-director of INTER/MEDIATE, a media art educational festival focused on cultivating growth within Vancouver’s media art communities and empowering marginalized communities with access to workshops, artist talks and collaborative opportunities. Bhumber is a Sundance New Frontier alumni and is collaborating with Nancy Lee on a speculative-sci fi solo exhibition, UNION.
