ONLINE COURSE: Visual Arts and the Brain
Interdisciplinary course about aesthetic perception.
Why are we moved to tears by certain pictures? Why does our body feel a kind of tension when looking to a classical sculpture? How does a slow-motion image make our inner time to feel more intense? Which parts of our brain are involved in judging a painting beautiful? In fact, which is the bond established between images and our brain?
“Visual Arts and the Brain” will be an interdisciplinary course focused on studying how our brain is affected by and processes artistic images. To increase the knowledge on this subject, materials from different sources (neuroscience,philosophy, art) will be used during the eight weeks that this course will last.
Course starts 3 June 2013
