Course Description

What’s the actual experience people have when standing before a work of art, taking it in?

Find out thanks to this unique guest lecture that will be of interest to artists, photographers and the general public at large. Hill’s latest book is by far the largest study ever conducted that involves eye-tracking technology and art in order to learn where people precisely look, for how long, and in what order. By adding in facial coding, Hill also captures not only where people look but how they feel about what they’re seeing. In addition to results that cover 88 famous art works from the Renaissance to today, Hill’s lecture will also explore how knowing facial expressions, per emotion, can enrich your understanding and appreciation of portraiture based on his previous book, Famous Faces Decoded: A Guidebook for Reading Others.
