“Aesthetic, Experience, and Inquiry”
This evening brings together a contemporary artist, Jennifer Steinkamp and an experimental psychologist, Piotr Winkielman for a richly illustrated conversation about the nature of experience. It will reveal surprising convergence of concerns in contemporary art, psychology and neuroscience about how experiences are generated via interplay of multisensory perception, bodily involvement, and conceptual ideas. The audience will experience both the aesthetic beauty of art and insights from science.
