Simran, a communication design graduate has recently concluded a master’s program in New Media Design at the National Institute of Design. She seeks to explore the intersections between New media, Art, and Culture through the exploration of tangible interactions with everyday objects. Her interests lie in the domain of research, interactive installations and the design of experiences around food and eating.
Her work reflects the amalgamation of communication & visualization skills, critical design thinking married with technological tinkering culminating seamless digital experiences.
She has in the past been awarded research funding for the project “A Punjabi Palimpsest: Cultural Memory and Amnesia at the Aam Khas Bhag” by the Art & Humanitarian Research Council, United Kingdom and university of Surrey.
Her Work has also been commemorated at NID, Unbox design conference as well as the Alchemy festival 2013 at London, United Kingdom.
The practice of new media calls for deep understanding of both physical and digital spaces, interfaces and interactions gravitating towards thought provoking and inspiring experiences.
