Circuit Breakers

Amber Jones (2015)

Circuit Breakers by Amber Jones, Amanda Marano, Caitlin Quinlan and Jack Taylor :: Supported by FRFAF from STUDIO for Creative Inquiry on Vimeo.


“Circuit Breakers” created by Amber Jones, Amanda Marano, Caitlin Quinlan and Jack Taylor, is a piece that explores the modern representation of data with an attempt to break it. In our project, we explored the art of datamoshing, circuit bending and vocoding, all while projecting our visuals onto a pile of mirror balls to expand the area that visuals are typically confined in.

Circuit Breakers was supported by a microgrant from the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier (FRFAF)— an endowment founded to encourage the creation of innovative artworks by the faculty, students and staff of Carnegie Mellon University. With this fund, the STUDIO seeks to develop a cache of groundbreaking projects created at CMU — works that can be described as “thinking at the edges” of the intersection of disciplines.
