4) How does the mind accept random, incomplete or contradictory information?

One way this can be answered is with the concept of closure. Closure is perceiving the whole while seeing only fragments and it allows you to transform shapes and outlines into meaning. The mind is able to apply closure by being able to hold two opposing ideas at the same time. In terms of video editing, this is how the mind accepts a series of diverse images that are strung together in a montage.

“Closure is an act-of-faith that allows us to survive in the world.”

To summarize, it is a confluence of these 4 ideas about pictures, language, closure and identity which make up the underpinnings of this experimental work.
