Psychedelic Life Drawing
4 April 2018, The Book Club, London
What would the world look like if you could see it through someone else’s eyes? Find out in this extra special life drawing class.
You’ll be guided through five different ways of seeing by sensory neuroscientist Ed Bracey and artist Stephanie Bickford-Smith. Discover alternative ways that the brain perceives the world, and consider how these would alter your perception of reality.
Our senses receive information from the world around us, and send it to our brains to create a picture that informs our actions. However, this is an interpretation, and doesn’t always accurately represent what’s really out there. There are huge differences in the way each of us views things, making everyone’s experience completely unique.
Explore these differences through drawing exercises based a range of “neuro-differences” that affect how the brain perceives the world. You’ll develop five unique drawings, each representing a different phenomena in perception. These range from being unable to see movement or faces, having your vision filled with static, perceiving only the right half of objects, and interpreting sound in colour. By the end of the drawing class will you trust your senses to tell you the truth about what’s out there?
Tickets are available here.
