(Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex):
"An Artist Residency at The Sackler Centre"
Hosted by: "State of Mind: A Consciousness Science 'Expo'" (30 June 2012, Brighton Corn Exchange)
Abstract: Kate Genevieve is currently artist-in-residence at the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex. Kate has been investigating the Sackler Centre’s research into conscious presence and interoceptive awareness through the creation of multi-sensory installations. She will talk about the digital performance NO PLACE, that employs immersive visuals, multi-sensory effects and binaural soundscapes to take participants on a journey that plays with their awareness of the environment and of their own bodies. She will also show her new project, an installation that combines eighteenth century illusion techniques with contemporary biosensor technology, to stage a visceral encounter with the audience’s heartbeat. http://www.kategenevieve.com
The one-day State of Mind science expo was organised by David Schwartzman and Hazelle Woodhurst, bothof the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at University of Sussex, as part of the first ever public outreach and engagementprogram in the 16 year history of the 'Annual Meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness' (ASSC16),which this year was also hosted by the Sackler Centre.Held at the Brighton Corn Exchange, 'State of Mind' explored the new science of consciousness and sought to make the ASSC16 not just an academic event but a 'true citywide celebration of consciousness science'. An ambition more than surpassed on the day considering 'State of Mind' attracted over 1,800 members of the public of all ages and backgrounds, with queues at times stretching round the block as the Corn Exchange reached capacity.
The expo also ran three very popular short talk sessions on Zen, Art and Creativity, Art and the Scientific Study of Consciousness and Consciousness: The Final Frontier - and the podcast presented here was part of Panel 2 on Art and the Scientific Study of Consciousness.
The scientific studies of consciousness and neuroscience bring new approaches to perception-related questions. Chaired by Gordana Novakovic, curator of the Computer Science Department at UCL and founder of the Tesla Art|Science Group this panel explored work by artists who are investigating, exploring and questioning this research. http://www.gordananovakovic.net/
