Perspective-Specific Data Storage

Meaning is never as simple as pure black and white. There is often many shades in-between. Depending on your perspective, vantage point, and existing biases, each object we encounter in life has an individual meaning to each of us. Our medium enables data to be stored and decoded in different ways by various users. Each filter represents a bias or attribute, that merges with the information to create an output of meaning. At times, humans are detached from the intermediary layer that forms their biases and viewpoints. At other times, these intermediary translators or decoders of meaning are so integral to one’s being, they become a permanent lens the world is seen through.
