In this inaugural event of the Research to Practice (R2P) Talk Series, Professor Tim Welsh unpacks the process through which an artist observes others at their practice and uses those observations to shape their own work. Challenging the notion of "passive viewers", this talk reveals the many ways in which spectators understand art through references to their own body and action capabilities. Drawing on research involving dance, music and graphic arts, he delves deep into the brain to uncover how it allows us to view, interpret and then perform art.
