AccueilSpace-Time Geometries and Movement in the brain and in the Arts

Résumé

Space and time are of fundamental importance to understand human perception, action, memory and cognition. Movement, which describes the changes in the locations of physical objects and human bodies with the passage of time, is equally important in physics, biology, neuroscience, psychology, as well as the arts. Our bodies and minds shape the way we perceive space and time and the scientific theories we formulate about physical laws. Hence the importance of understanding how the brain perceives and represents space, time and movement, and how it plans and controls our bodily movement and actions. Our interest in the use of movement, space and time in different artistic fields - fine and digital arts, performance arts and music - is mainly inspired by the notion that knowledge about the general organizing principles and simplifying strategies used by the brain in perception action and memory, in movement generation and representation, and in action-perception coupling, can lead to new insights regarding the ways artists make use of movement, space and time.
