Andrew Belletty is an Indian-born Australian Audio Visual Designer, Vibrotactile Media Artist and Writer, working with digital and analog media within intercultural spaces with a particular interest in the vibrotactile materiality of sound applications within visual, performance and media arts.

The multi-layered, experimental and site responsive works draw from ancient Indian knowledges and practices which connect bodies and heal country, reconfiguring audio-visual technologies to create a decolonised techno space.
