Speakers: Prof. Mohamed Sobhy School of Engineering and Digital Arts, The University of Kent

Developments in science and technology have always influenced art. From mathematics, artists learned about perspective while chemical processing resulted in affordable colours previously not seen; two advances enabling both Impressionism and Fauvism. Newton and Goethe’s work on vision helped artists understand how we see colour with Turner and Mondrian both applying Goethe’s theories.  Indeed, psychologists raised awareness of colour constancy and adaptation while photography showed those stages of movement not perceived by the eye as seen in the works of Duchamp and Picasso. Of course, science and technology can by themselves be subjects for art, be it in the workshop or laboratory, and as seen in the works of Goya, Manet and Joseph Wright of Derby.

The talk will explain these ideas through examples of artwork from medieval to present time.

Refreshments are served from 6:00 p.m, talk begins at 6:30 p.m. Please register online to attend lectures.
