    This project was born from the idea of creating computer speech using its language and aesthetics.

    Is a computer capable of creating a story from its memory? A computer always identifies what it sees from pixels, bits or binary code. With this in mind, I've thought about a project that simulates the computer understanding, giving to it some powers established by me. This understanding has been limited with three perception levels: real or human, oneiric and artificial.

    This project is a part of an experimentation process with the computer, its context and the information it processes from different perspectives, like in this case: what are understanding and interpretation.

    The Machinefy demo was built with Flash ActionScript 3.0. It works with the famous Bruce Lee's interview video. The program "decides", using random systems, which part of the video it has to jump to and which perception level it has to show. These random systems calculate these decisions, and how long these decisions persist
