Visual Effects: Looking At Seeing with Margaret Livingstone and Dana Clancy
I'm very honored to be speaking as part of the Catalyst Conversations @ Broad Institute (in collaboration with Kendall Square Association Third Thursday)

Thursday, February 20, 2014
7 Cambridge Center
Cambridge, MA 02142

6-7 pm
Reception to follow

The program:
Livingstone and Clancy will discuss what is known about visual illusions from the point of view of both science and art. Livingstone has recently been investigating the role that depth perception and its lack might play in the work of various artists. She and her team have collected evidence that a number of well known artists, including Rembrandt, might have been stereoblind, and will discuss what this means from the point of view of neuroscience. Clancy will discuss the way that her work "cultivat[es] the viewer's awareness of shifting points of view in relation to both the paintings and how one experiences real space." Together, these two thinkers and practitioners will discuss what art and science can tell us about some of the ways in which we experience and process the visual world.
