| `-- Human spatial perception is a 3D reconstruction of visual, tactile,
| aural stimuli. However, the ability to imagine more dimensions
| extends beyond our perception. In fact, mathematics and physics use
| consistently abstract devices that work in multiple dimensions.
| IC_ is a work-or-tool which investigates the mental reconstruction of
| multidimensional spaces: a hypothetical extension of the ability to
| "see" in three dimensions.
| The piece consists of a program that acts as data server-receiver,
| connecting other programs that generate or inject a stream of data.
| The communication protocol requires that data are particles, points or
| discrete information. Therefore, IC_ is acting without any knowledge
| of the meaning nor the origin of the data. Shapes shown in an
| arbitrary instant could be weather information, biological, or even
| random. In a system like this, any information is spatial and the
| temporal dimension is interchangeable with a spatial one. The total
| separation between the display and the displayed information suggests
| a reflection on the mind of modern research: the relationship between
| the three-dimensional perception of stimuli and the understanding of
| abstract information.
