SEE THRU:. Los Angeles Art Association\, California Ins titute of Technology and ICON LA are pleased to announce SEE THRU\, an inve stigation of photography\, perception and brain science in collaboration wi th Professor Shinsuke Shimojo\, world renowned researcher and expert in fie ld of vision\, perception and cognitive neuroscience.

\n


Through a co llaborative process with Professor Shimojo\, thirteen photographers explore the intersection between vision and neuroscience through the investigation of the sensory filters that form our perceptual experiences. Spanning the entire gallery\, this exhibit incorporates materials such as oil\, vapor\, magnetic film and power cables with light\, projection\, photo and video.

\n


Participating artists are: Dori Atlantis\,Ching Ching Cheng\,Krista Kahl\,Marcie Kaufman\,Siri Kaur\,Yoichi Kawamura\,Shana Mabari\,Meg Madiso n\,Glynnis Reed\,Mei Xian Qiu\,A.M. Rousseau\,Ginger And Luke Van Hook.

In his essay for this exhibit\, Professor Shimojo says: “I am driven by my obsession with psychophysics\, visual science\, cognitive neuroscienc e\, and sensory development. My education\, research and exhibition work is inextricably linked to my long relationship with experimental psychology w ithin the academic and public arena. What I find most intriguing about (hum an) perceptual experience is that what is visible is the result of a hidden \, invisible process utilizing physical and physiological optics\, subconsc ious and physiological mechanisms\, associations to memory\, emotion and ac tion\, just to name a few. Thus in short\, the brain “knows” much more than what you “see\,” and as a result\, you see much more than what the retina is able to process. By the same token\, perception sometimes goes against c onscious expectation.”

< span style="font-size: small\;">Shinsuke Shimojo has received his bachelor’ s and master’s degrees from University of Tokyo\, and Ph.D. from MIT. He is an expert in visual perception\, sensory integration and development\, dec ision making\, and neural mechanisms underlying these functions. He has pub lished more than 130 papers in professional scientific journals including “ Nature” and “Science.” He is also well known for his out-reaching activity\ , science museum exhibitions\, and collaborations with artists. He is curre ntly Gertrude Baltimore Professor o f Experimental Psychology\, in Biology / Computation and Neural Systems at California Institute of Technology.

This exhibit is sponsored by t he California Institute of Technology Classroom Connection (CCC) Program\, with generous funding provided by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI ). The SEE THRU exhibit will continue with works on paper at The ICON Galle ry from November 13- December 17\, 2010.
