Course Aims

The course offers an introduction to the main concepts in the study of human perception and cognition with a special emphasis in the relation of these concepts with the artistic practice and in interaction design. Its syllabus includes an historical perspective of this relation, and discusses some of the philosophical aspects of perception and cognition.

The course approaches these subjects from both theoretical and practical –applied– points of view. Therefore, students will divide their dedication between mandatory readings and practical work (doing experiments, creating artworks, or designing interactions).

The course's assessment tasks include group work (home reading, classwork, presentations and discussions) as well as one final individual quiz, and one group final project. The final project will comprise a monographic work, an experimental work, or an applied project in art or interaction design, depending on each group’s interests.
