Lecture by media artist Prof. Dr. Jill Scott (Basel, Switzerland)

July 9, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Media art and neuroscience have one specific thing in common: They’re both interested in how we perceive the world! Media artist Jill Scott will talk about how media art can change and sharpen our senses by demonstrating media art’s change and development over the past few years. Audio-visual technologies shape the perception of ourselves and have a great influence on art and science. Jill Scott illustrates this influence by talking about how audio-visual technologies evolved: About the non-digital images of our bodies, to political and dualistic notions of body and body art, from postmodern coded body information and digital screen manipulations to virtual characters and object-oriented sensory interaction with the audience.

In her series NEUROMEDIA, Jill Scott combines media art and neurobiological anatomy with neuroscientific studies on our perception of the world. Every piece of art is a sculpture and can be explored in „realtime“ by the visitors. NEUROMEDIA addresses the perception of our bodies today as a metaphor in a cultural context.

Note:

“AURALROOTS”, a work from the “NEUROMEDIA SERIES” is currently on display at the Anatomischen Museum at the University of Basel. Before her lecture at HEK, Jill Scott will be present at the museum and explain the piece (2pm-5pm).
