ART TALK / DEMO
Iris Scott featuring
Fingerpainting

1:00 – 1:45 pm
Booth #403: Adelman Fine Art
Watch Video

Finger painting is now fine art at the hands of New York based artist Iris Scott. Using her fingertips to strike multiple colors at a time she is like a pianist that understands piano is not to be played one note at a time. Iris Scott was classically trained in Florence, Italy and earned her BFA from Washington State University in 2006. Iris began oil finger painting in 2009 when she left the States to live a year in Taiwan. By a stroke of lucky laziness one afternoon when it was too hot outside, Iris opted not to pause on her painting to go clean brushes. It was in this moment the technique was discovered. A few swipes of paint with her fingertips and Iris found a new impressionistic style. She has not used a brush since, and has enjoyed painting full time since 2010. Iris is represented by Adelman Fine Art in San Diego.

John Reynolds featuring
RHODOPSIN

Hour TBD / Location TBD

WSOHOIDPS (A SHIP IN THE WOODS) in collaboration with Salk neurobiologist John Reynolds, sound artist Greg Smaller (LABS), Tactical Urbanists and Daw-An Wu team up for Rhodopsin, a light installation based on the research of Patrick Cavanagh, Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception, Université Paris Descartes.   

Our perceptual experience is not the direct experience of the world around us. Rather, it is the result of a constructive process, in which the brain formulates an ongoing hypothesis about the external world. Visual perception transforms the two tiny movies that constantly dance across the retinal screens on the back of each eye into the rich world we feel we inhabit. Opsins are biological pigments that reside in the photoreceptor cells of the retina, the cells that are responsible for the first events in the perception of light. Rhodopsin is the most sensitive opsin. It resides in the 120 million rod photoreceptors that sit in each of our retinae, enabling us to see in low illumination. In this exhibit, a flash of light will expose the observer to an afterimage as we create very unusual sensory conditions that will allow observers to experience the unfolding process of perceptual construction, from the photoreceptors to conscious awareness. Participants will experience a series of rich visual percepts that emerge through the interplay that takes place between our proprioceptive bodily sense and a visual system that is activated in total darkness.
