Project:Moments Intercepted

Why does this project interest me?
I am interested in the intangible structure of thought that evolves out of the work of billions of neural connections in our brains--the means by which we navigate our days and lives. This is the interface through which we connect the virtual realities of our inner and external world.  This is the way we come to know one another as human beings. It is from this architecture of the brain, according to philosopher Daniel Dennett in his 2005 book "Sweet Dreams," that consciousness springs. I am proposing, through the artifacts I would submit for this project, to implant memories, virtually fragments of me, into the consciousness of those who view the images. It is my intention to become an embedded component of the neural connections of those who view (detect), and subsequently commit to memory (process), the artifacts I submit.  In short, I am proposing to entangle a shared experience into the consciousness of viewers whom I will never know.
