Encapsulated in a century old tradition going from golems to Metropolis, I use the research
of some esteemed individuals and some of my own digital musings to try to catch a glimpse of this strange phenomenon called mind.
As my knowledge of the matter and my pogramming skills progress,
the state of the project will be probed in smaller performances and installations.
