Machine Awareness

A machine attemps to record its awareness, though the process of recording itself disrupts the thing its trying to record.

     For this project we were to explore the idea of awareness with computers. We had the oppertunity to explore face tracking technology combined with the concepts of awareness and intelligence. I spent a large amount of time explore the open endded concpet of awareness, looking for guidence from religion and pschycology speakers like Alan watts. The final outcome was a computer that would attempt to search internally to understand itself more, though by doing so would create more information to attempt to understand. The process would continue for ever become more and more complex. The only resolve would be if the process was stopped, when the computer is idle it is aware.
