This is Your Brain on Art

Read about Eb Fetz’s latest collaboration with non-scientists in DXARTS, an interdisciplinary degree granting center designed to support the emergence of a new generation of hybrid artists. Eb and two faculty members from DXARTS (an artist and an art historian) taught a new course intended to introduce the basics of neuroscience to stimulate new ideas about art and the brain. “[Eb] believes that artists can creatively address scientific problems about the mind and brain, bringing ideas and methods that don’t exist within a traditional scientific domain. That belief, he says, is what inspired him to co-teach the course.”
