            Abstract

            Dennett proposes a theory of consciousness whereby multiple parallel neural processes operate without centralised control, giving rise to consciousness as an emergent property of their functioning (Dennett 1991). Central to Dennett’s theory is the idea of producer processes that generate data from external and internal stimuli, and consumer processes, which hungrily look for particular data sources, all operating asynchronously. Taking this as a model, and building on previous work (Dekker 2018), the Expressive Machine project investigates, from the ground up, the design, implementation and continued development of a series of decentralised hardware/software entities as art installations, which explore a machine’s-eye view of the world
