Claire Reika Wright's work Wired was inspired by the artist's fascination with what goes on in the frenetic and tangled pathways of our brains - like her work Thought. The work is a visual interpretation and metaphoric rendering of what Wright interprets as a busy day for the synapses, as viewed from the inside of the brain. The colours used are saturated versions of the grey outer convoluted surface of the human brain. Wright composed an accompanying soundtrack that complements the darting thought processes and the tiny scraps of messages that constantly flitter from one cortex to another.
The 5 minute video loop is derived from an interactive "moving painting" app called 'Wired for Thought', which takes the viewer on a continuous and never quite repeating journey inside the skull.
