For the first instalment of a brand new series of events exploring intersections between arts, science and technology, we present a unique audiovisual performance developed from visual neuroscience research.
Visual patterns will be generated live, synchronised and driven by music; producing an intense combined experience. These patterns have been designed through research attempting to unravel the computational processes involved in the summation of sinusoidal grating responses - which are a fundamental visual stimulus processed in our brain. This simple pattern is combined and processed through the visual pathway with Fourier-like principles to create our complex visual experience contributing to our overall perception.
This research is still young; our current knowledge of visual processing is surprisingly naive. This event will explore possibilities for the arrangement and operations these signals undertake. In synchronising these basic patterns and applying a few simple transformations to the geometry and mathematical combination of the layers - a hypothetical mirror of the brain process can be viewed. The 2 simple layers quickly start to produce wildly complex, shifting patterns; although due to their fundamental nature - will be directly stimulating early to mid-level vision at the beginning of the cortical visual processing hierarchy.
The combined multi-sensory input with highly synchronised audio creates a new layer of perceptual experience. The event will test and explore the integration of these two senses to stimulate multiple low-level brain regions contributing to the sensorium.
Through adjusting perceptions we have an insight into the constructed nature of our reality.
