Abstract:

Liberated Debris is a series of musical instruments made from discarded objects to explore our relationship with our devices. It’s a physical collage of components, materials and parts, put together to reveal new meanings. More specifically, it reveals and protests the decline of making among people, and the domination of manufacturers over all aspects of the technology production industry. This thesis challenges our reliance on manufacturers to fulfill all our technology needs, and aims to inspire the audience and engage them to become active makers. It argues that making can reclaim and redistribute knowledge for its own sake. Liberated Debris is an un-disciplined study that embraces all knowledge and all people, regardless of experience and education.
