“Our sensory systems activate only in the presence of change, and our cognitive awareness of heat, light or sound is not of the environment at all, but of the manner in which our own bodies are reacting to the environment.”

-Michelle Addington, ”The Phenomena Of The Non-Visual”

Cognition arises through a dynamic interaction between an acting organism and its environment. Our environment is one which we selectively create through our capacities to interact with the world. When we perceive, the abstract information is extracted from its context; once they translate into an internal representation, it becomes independent from its origin and is able to be processed and manipulated. The intention of this project is: to observe our fluid bodily changes and self-adjustments toward space and time. Through a walking experiment, this project use data as a generated material mirroring the body and projecting onto the ambient condition to reveal a hidden world lie between what the eyes see and what the body believes.
