Ouroboros by Kat Austen and Fara Peluso is a multi-media installation that combines soft robotics, video, music, bioplastic and sculpture to explore circular modalities of human relationships to resources, consumption and materials. It is an outcome of the Circular Records STARTS Residency Repairing the Present at Ars Electronica, through which Austen and Peluso began their ongoing research on the production of a fully circular replacement for vinyl records.

Co-commissioned by Ars Electronica within the framework of STARTS Residency Repairing The Present with the support of Johannes Kepler University Linz, Innovationshauptplatz of the City of Linz, Greiner Innoventures GmbH, co-funded by the STARTS programme of the European Union. Videography by Falko Seidel, metalwork Keep Away From Fire.
