The world of art and the science of visual perception seem to be only distant relatives…
When Leonardo da Vinci wrote that chromatically opposite colours are the most beautiful, he was actually describing how the visual brain works. The view from the inside is the first attempt to link art to said visual brain.
Building upon the artwork Horn, exhibited at the MAXXI in the Gravity. Imaging the Universe after Einstein exhibition, Laurent Grasso and Semir Zeki, who is both neurobiology professor at London’s University College and one of the most prominent experts in how the visual brain of primates is organised, will discuss the science of perception.
