Data Logging in the Spaces Between
You can never predict what a person will do, because it would require all the information that a person has and has had; but the person does not even have that himself, for most of a human's experiences and operations are nonconscious.- Tor Norrentranders, The User Illusion (367)
In general, when I analyze objects, art, ideas, and people, I find understanding through the context of relationships. I am exploring "spaces between." For this assignment, I am interested in the space between consciousness and unconsciousness in regards to information we may or may not perceive, process, and interpret in our daily operations. Traveling with an object(s) that is outwardly turned to the world, logging information without my attention, I will look at the corners of my world that do not get looked at, perhaps discovering measurements of myself in relation to the world around me.
I plan to build two systems:
1. "Eye in the back of my Head" is a tiny camera hidden in my pony tale to visually document the world behind me that I am always leaving.
2. "Headphone Recorder" is headset modified to record external sounds as I listen to my "internal" music.
