This lecture launches the Museum’s new Creativity Exploration programs.
Highlighting the work of Frank Stella on view in the current exhibition Frank Stella: Experiment and Change, and Stella’s experimentation with optics and perception, Dr. Boucher will examine concepts of neuroscience and their application to art.
Humans perceive the world in three dimensions, yet our retinas register only a two-dimensional representation of the world. In much the same way, paintings can be two-dimensional, yet can be perceived in three dimensions. By understanding the neural underpinnings of depth perception, we come to better understand the work of both neuroscientists and artists.
Leanne Boucher, Ph.D. is an associate professor of psychology at Nova Southeastern University.
