Science informing Art?

Science informing Art?

WHEN: 21st March 2016 @ 7pm

Artist Madi Boyd creates installations from projected moving image and large constructions. Psychologist Dr Polly Dalton conducts research into cross-modal perception and attention.

They will discuss their on-going collaboration and their scientifically informed art project. They use installation art to experiment with cross-modal perception, to explore how what we experience in one sense will affect how we perceive something in another sense, and how these interactions sculpt our visual experience.

Because installation art requires bodily presence and is about the body in space, it is intrinsically a multi-sensory experience and so research into multi-modal perception is, they believe, crucial to an understanding of how to create installation experiences.
