Mobile eye tracking as a tool to explore the artistic mind

Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre, Denmark Hill Campus, London
Because human eye movements can be interpreted as indicators of mental activity, including attention, exploration, or preference, they play a major role in the experimental study of aesthetic experience. The advent of mobile eye-tracking offers new opportunities to study gaze patterns on paintings in their real-world context.
We will bring the latest eye tracking glasses into the SGDP arts exhibition to demonstrate how eye movements link art works to their mental representation – and let volunteers experience how scientists observe and analyse their interaction with the exhibits in the gallery.
This is a free drop-in event.
