Space Gender Surface
This project will utilize methods and methodologies from science, specifically those exploring the cognitive and haptics in the fields of Neuropsychology and Neurobiology (Historically, much research has been carried out in this field exploring connections between to spatial skills, Mathematics and gender. More recently research has been carried out in the field of haptic orientation perception). It will also utilize new technology engaged in motion capture to create aesthetic works that draw or map perceptual responses. The aim of this interdisciplinary work is in the first instance to analyze gender difference in perception. The project would explore spatial visualization and haptic orientation in and shaped by domestic space.
In the second instance, the research would examine links between artworks by women concerned with a feminine aesthetics and the finds of mapping perception in domestic space. A further outcome of the project would be a series of works produced from the initial stage of research (mapping the cognition and perception in domestic space), to evolve or define a gender aesthetics (potentially within a gendered virtual).
