See It, Feel It: People’s Intuitive Reactions to Famous Art
Ever wonder what people’s actual experience is when standing before a work of art? It’s time to get the “inside scoop.” Prepare yourself for the fascinating results from the largest study ever done involving eye tracking and art, plus facial coding to learn precisely not only where people look but also how they feel about what they are seeing. This lecture draws on insights gathered across the mediums of painting, photography, sculpture and ready-made installations from the Renaissance to the latest contemporary works. “Art is either plagiarism or revolution,” wrote Paul Gauguin. Welcome to revolution. You won’t find another art lecture like this anywhere else.
