Description

The Art of Seeing by Professor Robert Pepperell

No-one knows how we see. The fact that many of us are able to experience a rich, vivid visual world cannot be explained by contemporary science. Artists are often experts at seeing, and know far more about the nature of vision that it usually recognised. This is because for hundreds, if not thousands, of years artists have been actively investigating their own visual experience in order to better depict it in images. In this talk I will discuss some of the work that I have been doing with my colleagues which connects artistic knowledge about vision with scientific knowledge, and how these two domains can work together towards a better understanding of how we see.
