This course is designed for graduate and undergraduate students from different fields and is aimed to provide knowledge on perception through experiments on perception and demonstration of different perceptual phenomena. The experiments on perception will be performed and discussed in relation to contemporary artworks to understand the intertwined history of art and psychology.

In addition to experiments, we will discuss concepts stemming from different disciplines that changed the understanding of perception in art, philosophy, phenomenology, neuroscience, and psychology. The reading materials include texts written by James J. Gibson, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Francisco Varela, and recent papers from scientific journals. The participants will develop and present projects that are related to the topics of the workshop.
