Technology mirrors how the brain works, in fact the idea of how memory works often compares the brain to a computer system. As we experience the world around us we are constantly bombarded by information and signals that our senses send to our brains for interpretation. Within a vast system of electrical pulses and synaptic connections the brain constructs what we perceive to be the real world; thus, the reality that we experience is nothing more than electricity, manipulated by our bodies. Science tells us how the brain works and psychology tells us how the brain interprets. This work explores the relationship between science and perception as well as the interaction between art and technology.
The code used to generate the images is completely original and is just as hand made as any other form of art, except that the result resides inside of a computer until the image is printed out. The image is randomly generated so that each time the program is sun, a different image will be produced, making it possible to create multiple unique images in a short period of time.
