Circuit Breaker collaborative art show at TWU

Circuit Breaker was a collaborative immersive electronic art installation, featuring solo works by myself, Michael A. Morris, and Luke Hardnen at the Texas Womens University art gallery.  Featuring installations receiving interactive data from the internet, we created an immersive experience and hosted an artist discussion panel over the course of the month-long installation.   https://apps.twu.edu/calendar/showevent.aspx?sEventID=2239

The theme of the Circuit Breaker is a participatory multimedia installation that considers the cause-and-effect relationship between information flow and the various levels through which it cascades – shifting with individual and collective perceptions, commentaries, and energies – challenging viewers to stop and think about their position within the social media and Internet food chains.

This piece was cultivated from the observation of the potential dangers of internet slander.
