WOW!!!!!
Had my HIGHEST EVER number of visitors and page hits overnight, over 120 different visitors in one night and over 140 of my pages read and galleries visited!
That’s so humbling.
Diolch yn fawr iawn x

I’m currently summarising chapters from a paper I’ve read dealing with neuroscience and Art and the use of visual practices across University departments.

Art, neuroscience, and visual practices – Two discussions around art, science and philosophy. With Elkins, the claim that concepts from art and art history are not up to the task of describing scientific image-making on account of their tie to representation.
With Hyman, a direct criticism of the claims of neuroscience to account for understanding and experiencing art.
J. Elkins (2010), ‘Visual practices across the university’, in R. Frigg and M.C. Hunter (eds), Beyond Mimesis and Convention. Dordrecht: Springer, pp. 169-92.
J. Hyman (2010), ‘Art and neuroscience’, in Frigg and Hunter, pp. 241-57.

It’s quite heavy going.

I’m really looking forward to attending the Artes Mundi 6 conference and seminars being held over two days on our Cardiff School of Art and Design campus over the next two days.
It’s an exciting time!
