In the recent acknowledgment of perceptual visual processes and time, scientists confirm that the storage of mental images is never instantaneous rather in relation to the processing of perception (1994,Verilo). Light data is about recalling images out of personal experience rather than confronting with another visual stimuli. Trough introducing the numeric data of the light conditions, the astronomical time and geographical region, I construct a narrative for image evoking. The idea is influenced of studies on perception, memory and construction of realities, according them, each viewer would have a different image recall of the very same non-visual information. The sublimation of this data works are not in my graphical, numerical or textual stories rather in the images they manifest in ones imagination.
The code behind this work is a python poem for data transformation, where machines are calibrated to empower our sensoria but fail in the limitations of our descriptions of visual light. RGB colors follow the notion of the light appearances, where in dimensional construction of the data I navigate the objective manifestation.
