Amanda explores relationships between measurable data patterns and visual story-telling. She is interested in reclaiming data exhaust as fuel for world-building and spatial portraiture with the potential to heighten ones awareness of personal and collective real-world and virtual activity.
Amanda also considers how contemporary research within neuroscience can inspire methods of design thinking. As a Fulbright Student in 2011-12, she worked with researchers in Neurocinematics at Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland.
Amanda’s media applications emphasize strong visual story-telling through animation. She received a Student Academy Award in 2012 for her stereoscopic 3D animated film, The Reality Clock, and continues to direct short-form multi-media films in addition to her interactive work.
