Paviter Singh, Never Vacant, 2008

Paviter Singh is a graduate from LASALLE College of the Arts, with a major in Interactive Art. He has constantly looked to traditional as well as technological forms of art as expression. Having previously come from a technological background, the merger of the technical field with the art realm has produced exciting and unexpected results. Paviter’s primary body of work focuses on environmental sound, generative sound and spatial acoustics. Always pushing the visual and aural boundaries, he has created works of art which are both visually as well as aurally inclined. Always looking into communication and miscommunication, Paviter looks to explore silence, sound and aural experiences in our environment. URL
