Michelang_IO_lo interprets images. The algorythm uses the two images seen by Michelang_IO_lo as that which is seen by each of the two eyes. But Software's physics is not the same as the one found in human bodies, and Michelang_IO_lo's two eyes can simultaneously see totally different things, two different points of view of the same scenery, the "real" and the "imaginary". Anything. That can fit inside a JPEG image. And software's vision does not aim to visualize in the same way as the human eyes do. Michelang_IO_lo's sight is another one: mathematical, noisy, digital. Michelang_IO_lo is a software object: it analyzes, processes, elaborates. And it performs Input and Output. Michelang_IO_lo processes its vision, transofrming it into sound. Vision gets sampled, and transformed into a series of soundwaves that create sound by superimposion.
