Mind is the World Knowing Itself

Mind is the World Knowing Itself will bring together a unique group of artists and designers who are members of a research group based at Cardiff School of Art & Design.

Led by Robert Pepperell, the participants are each interested in the way art and design can contribute to questions about human nature and experience, of the kind often asked by scientists and philosophers. How, for example, are we able to have visual knowledge of the world, and what does it look like? What is a body, and how does having one change the way we make and experience art? Are aesthetics properties features of an object, a person, a brain, a mobile body, a social context – or some combination of these?

Artists include:

» Professor Robert Pepperell  » Alise Piebalga  » Robin Hawes  » James Green  » Craig Thomas  » Theo Humphries  » Chris de Selincourt
