This essentially sums up everything I have to say in the world. Ironically, it is an early piece I have continuously remade. Clouded, is based on a piece has been created several times since the late 1990's, the latest incarnation being in 2009. Clouded does not outwardly resemble a horoscope, is not about language, nor rendered as text. It is clearly rooted in the visual modality. People imagine seeing animals, object, and so on, in real clouds in the sky. They do so because humans have an ability—which machines do not— to identify something lying beyond the detection process. While it is debatable as to whether a facial recognition program actually recognizes faces as “symbolic” (what do ones and zeros symbolize to the processors?), this phenomenon might better be described as transduction.
