Pint of science festival 2015 - Creative reactions. Work created in response to Prof Murray Shanahan's talk - Consciousness and Beyond: Artificial Consciousness.
Would an artificial consciousness ever be able to take the fragments of mind - thoughts, sensations, feelings - and create a self to make them whole? What would emerge from these splinters and noise of life; would it be too clean, too perfect of a filter and lose the chaos and contradictions of the human mind? These works explore the act of bringing together conscious attention using fragments and interference.
