The experiments on perception will be performed and discussed in relation to contemporary artworks in order to understand the intertwined history of art and psychology.

In addition to the experiments, concepts stemming from different disciplines that initiated a change in the understanding of perception in art and in its respective fields, such as philosophy, phenomenology, neuroscience, and psychology, will be discussed. The reading materials include texts by James J. Gibson, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Francisco Varela, among others, plus recent papers from scientific journals.
