Like flies in a cage our thoughts randomly move. A neurone fires. A multitude of neurones fire and create thoughts, consciousness. In doing so, the quadrants (i.e. neurons) acts in parallel with no clear distinction between conscious and unconscious mental states. The artwork, thus, is an attempt to artistically visualise Daniel Dennett's Multiple Drafts Model (MDM) of consciousness. This works investigates the aesthetics of pointers within the C++ toolkit openFrameworks.
