  • Canadian

David Bobier is a media artist who has been active in and for Deaf and Disability Arts for over two decades. He is the parent of two deaf children and lives in nature on the outskirts of London, Ontario. His creative practice is incorporating research and development of vibrotactile technology as a creative medium. This vibrotactile technology, originally developed for the Deaf, is essential in Bobier’s artistic practice for developing more accessible ways of creating and experiencing art in its many forms. This work led to his establishment of VibraFusionLab (VFL) in London, Ontario in 2014, a creative multi-media, multi-sensory centre researching and supporting inclusive technologies for supporting arts practice and for greater accessibility to the arts.

He is also Founder and Past Chair of London Ontario Media Arts Association (LOMAA), Member of the Board of Media Arts Network Ontario (MANO/RAMO), and Founder and Co-chair of Inclusive Arts London.
