Andrew introduced me to the artist Richard Irwin and his perception based works.
Andrew has been a resident researcher and adjunct professor at ITP for five years. As an artist he focuses on interactive video and projections designs for retail and public spaces as well as for theater, dance, and opera. Most recently he designed the new rock musical “Head Over Heels” currently on Broadway, and the systems for Tiffany’s flagship store’s window displays.
His works along with Dale on visual perception was very important in getting the main points about perception across to me. He made that color cube “illusion”.
His work focuses on the biological, computational and psychological mechanisms of perception. He has conducted and presented research on human and bumblebee perception and behavior for more than 25 years, and his interest in education, business and the arts has led him into entrepreneurship and engaging the public with science.
and engaging the public with science. In 2001, Beau founded the Lab of Misfits, a neuro-design studio that was resident for two years at London’s Science Museum and most recently at Viacom in New York. The lab’s experimental studio approach aims to deepen our understanding of human nature, advance personal and social well-being through research that places the public at the centre of the process of discovery, and create unique programmes of engagement that span the boundaries between people, disciplines and institutions.
His course “Visual Perception and the Brain” was one of the main reasons that i’m here today.
Dale Purves is Geller Professor of Neurobiology Emeritus in the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences where he remains Research Professor with additional appointments in the department of Psychology and Brain Sciences, and the department of Philosophy at Duke University.
He is the only one i found at NYU that does related research.
is an American professor of psychology and neural science at New York University whose research spans a cross-section of engineering, psychology, and neuroscience.
