This course stems from the thesis that humans need to learn to see.


 

Offered to both MIT and Wellesley students, this course stems from the thesis that humans need to learn to see, that there are long-term evolutionary and short-term cultural pressures on this process, and that “learning to see” continues throughout life. Organized into neuroscience labs, experiments, studio exercises, readings, writing, presentations and lectures, this course is designed to reveal the intricacies of the visual apparatus, the effects of cultural conditioning and the subtleties of the visual processing that happens in the mind.
