The art of seeing: Perceiving and drawing the visual periphery
A BOF-research project in the arts from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp,
in collaboration with Erik Myin (UA) and Bilge Sayim (KU Leuven)
Visual perception outside the centre of the gaze, i.e., the periphery, is of major interest for artists,
philosophers and scientists, not least because the periphery covers over 90% of our visual field.
Here, we will investigate peripheral vision from all three perspectives by having artists draw
what they see in the periphery using gaze contingent presentations.
The resulting images will be analysed in regard to the phenomenology of peripheral vision.
