Out of mind

What if we could digitize the sub-conscious of our mind?

We are eager to digitize information. It seems like there is nothing which cannot be transformed into a digital format. One last challenge for the digital revolution is to wander deep inside our mind. Emotion, or more precisely, our sub-consciousness is still an uncharted territory. I attempted to digitize the sub-conscious part of our mind, starting with a very humane, unexpected process and then switching to a logical, conscious method of a computer. Comparing two different processes, I observed how digitalization can go beyond mere duplication, and explored a possibility of revealing our inner world playfully.
