Ravindra is interested in how people use media in everyday life and how this becomes a major basis of culture. His most recent scholarship focuses on a social construct of invisibility where he asks how the things we see and the things we do not, come to make a difference. With a foundation of training in media and cultural theory along with a history of personal media practice, his work concentrates on visual media and seeks connections between theory and practice, particularly using community focused research and engagement activities. Ravindra is as deeply interested in media history and theory as he is in emerging ‘new’ media futures.
