‘The Sensorial Object’ now open! - January 19th, 2015 -

The Sensorial Object

‘The Sensorial Object’ is now open at Craft in the Bay in Cardiff and runs until the 8th March. The exhibition aims to bring together new digital technologies with the long established traditions of ceramics, wood, glass and textiles, in order that we might fully explore the sensory capacity of the applied art object, and the ability of materiality to trigger sensory connections from sight, sound, touch, smell and even taste. The exhibits will be based around the domestic object, in order that we might re-visit familiar experiences through our sensory world, to enable fresh discoveries and new apertures of perception within and beneath the every day.

The exhibition is curated by Dr. Natasha Mayo and Zoe Preece, on behalf of the Makers Guild of Wales.

Applications are invited for two full-time university studentship, one in the field of Psychology and one in the field of Computation. Based in the Cardiff School of Art & Design, the successful applicants will be part of a newly formed multidisciplinary group engaged in a highly innovative research and development project.

Emulating the Perceptual Structure of Human Vision in Digital Media
Researchers at Cardiff School of Art & Design have developed a new form of pictorial perspective based on the structure of human visual perception. Our goal is to digitally emulate the way we actually see the world and how we interact with it visually.

The purpose of this PhD is to contribute to our research and development programme into the structure of visual perception and how it can be depicted in media. The successful candidates will be surveying relevant literature, designing and conducting studies using human participants, and contributing to the publication and dissemination of findings. Opportunities may be available for collaboration with and placements in departments in leading Universities in the UK and overseas. The student will conduct their research under the supervision of Prof Dr Robert Pepperell and be part of a team consisting of artists, designers, technologists, and computer scientists.

The deadline for applications is 12:00 Noon (GMT), Friday 20th February.
