The Cultural Department explores the relationship between scientific research and the artistic process.
Working transversally, it involves several artistic fields, such as music, dance and the visual arts. Scientific disciplines involved may include Artificial Intelligence, virtual reality, neuro-science and cognitive psychology. See comments above for etc.
|Encounters between Art and Cognitive Science|
As an illustration of this process, the Cultural Department is collaborating with University laboratories to organise encounters between researchers and artists with an interest in research into Cognitive Science.
The aim of these Encounters is to show how scientific enquiry has accessed certain mental processes and sensory/motor activities which are at the heart of artistic inspiration and creation, as well, in other forms, as of its appreciation.
