Light discussion

Art & Perception: The Flavin Conversations: Saturday, October 4th, 5:30-7:30pm

The exhibition Dan Flavin: Constructed Light presents a unique opportunity to consider the shifting nature of light in the Pulitzer galleries and its ability to shape and redefine architectural space. Please join us for a conversation between researchers in the diverse fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, architecture, art and design who will discuss the challenges this work presents to our systems of perception.

Kristina Visscher, Post-doctoral researcher in Neuroscience, Harvard University (PhD, Washington University in St. Louis)

The Pulitzer is hosting this event. I found this reference to it on 2 Buildings 1 Blog, the joint weblog of the Pulitzer and Contemporary. Eventually, I located the announcement quoted above. My friend Kristina Visscher is an alumna of the Washington University Program in Neuroscience. As I have blogged three times before, the Light Project is terrific. It ought to be a lot of fun.
