A Brew of Art/ Science/ Philosophy
Kicking off the programme 'Decoding Sensations', this symposium presents a series of talks that will explore sensations and perceptions.
at New River Studios
Beginning with a talk by Neuroscientist Carles Bosch, followed by Philosopher Jack Davis on how we see and perceive conceptual art in a philosophical view, it will end with a presentation by movement artist Amy Toner whose inspirations are taste and scents.
Opening the exhibition of 'Decoding Sensations', the talk will be set among exhibits. An evening of art, science and philosophy!
