Figure 5: Video still from Watching and Dreaming (2001: A Space Odyssey). The dream reconstruction (right) diverges significantly from the visual stimulus (left). The dream reconstruction is composed of percepts learned from earlier in the film where the color palette is warmer. There are also remnants of the previous waking state where the station and planet remain in the dream.
The image is clearly divided down the middle, creating a left side and a right side. Left side: space ship in an empty black void. Right side: more restrained splotches of color that do not clearly represent specific scenes, but where warm colors of landscape and cool colors of space can be differentiated. The outline of a space-ship (same as left) and planet's surface, as seen from space, are intelligible.
