As part of the Vision Sciences Society Conference, Rutgers Professor Thomas Papathomas presents a talk on how artists have been able to use their intuitive grasp of visual perception fundamentals to open new horizons in research. At the same time, the talk will highlight how visual scientists have used their research-based knowledge of visual brain function to provide a deep understanding of the art experience and, occasionally, venture into making art. Dali’s painting, Gala Contemplating…Portrait of Abraham Lincoln, will be a key focus of this talk.
Cost: Free to all. Lecture in the Raymond James Community Room.
