  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a “reactive” experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

Natural Science

Natural Science
NSCI 307
 
Natural Science Requirement
Fashion Design, Toy Design, and Product Design offer Natural Science courses that are specific to their
curricula. All other majors choose one course from the following offerings:
 
 
The Psychology of Seeing
NSCI307 — 3 credits
This course explores the mechanisms we employ in understanding and interpreting visual information. Through lectures and exercises students gain understanding of various visual phenomena. Psychological and physiological topics include the complexity of the eye, brain structures, optical illusions, as well as the perception of brightness, movement, color, and form.
 
Imagination and the Brain
NSCI307 — 3 credits
This course explores various aspects of the phenomenon of visualizing (mental imagery) by combining insights from neurology, psychology, and philosophy. Topics include visualizing in relationship to other visual phenomena, visualizing as one form of sensory imagination; visualizing as a component of nonconceptual cognition; and the continuities and discontinuities between mental images and the artistmade images (drawing, painting, and photography), which are based on such visualizations.
 
The Science of Sleep and Dreaming
NSCI307 — 3 credits
A multidisciplinary natural science class about sleeping and dreaming, focusing on the content and structure of dreaming and “dream logic.” Students will learn about the physiology of sleep and sleep disorders, and about the neurology and phenomenology of dream content.
