Generated Consciousness

‘People perceive what they are seeing differently based on their knowledge, but believe in the sensory data that they have received individually.’ (Linsenmayer2011) 

This was a project studying how the brain creates inaccurate models of the world based on minimal sensory information combined with expectations of reality.  

Through images which are built up using predictive software, a single detail in the visual system becomes overloaded, creating a new reality.

The original point of attention, and reason for shooting the image, is completely lost. Instead each individual brain perceives the images as something different entirely, relating to their conditional expectations.
