Is beauty in the eye of the beholder, or the orbitofrontal cortex? Do artists really look at the world differently, or for that matter does sex, species, or attitude change what you see? How is SEEING more than just looking, and could vision be just one of many ways of seeing? How does the brain interpret what our eyes glimpse, and how will computers, artificial intelligence, and machines further change the way we look at our world?
In summer 2016, Science Gallery Dublin will tackle the complex sensory experience of seeing, understanding, and perception. We'll illuminate optics, perspective, and comprehension while exploring enhanced and augmented ways of seeing, artificial eyes, and radical alternatives to vision.
Is there something special about this dominant sense, or should we only trust half of what we hear and none of what we see?
