Summary

#ArtSciP

Our perception of space and how we navigate through it involves coordinated interactions among neuronal ensembles throughout the brain. Aesthetically, we are rooted in a traditional system of constructed visual cues and resort to our collective consciousness of the haptic as a means of envisioning and successfully maneuvering among foreign locations in order to familiarize and learn an environment through demarcation. Prompted by an installation sculptor’s animation of rendered maze-like interior passages, a neuroscientist, an architect, and the artist discuss how memory, form, and light influence internal and external representations of our experiences.
