Art X Perceptual Psychology
We habitually categorize our perception of the world along the limits of our senses – sight, sound, tactile, and so forth, but these boundaries behave more like permeable fault lines. The Chinese language is filled to the bream with examples of cross-modal thinking – fine porcelain’s surface is ‘warm and moist’, a mind that is high-spirited is likened to the tactile sensation of a ‘filled-and-full’ stomach – examples are numerous. Hong Kong artist Samson Young will initiate this edition of “Cultural Masseur: Talking Heads” with the programme “Art X Perceptual Psychology: Cross-modal Imagination”. With a series of events which consists of an artist presentation, an experimental showcase and a chill-chat salon, you will be led into the important pathway to open-mindedness through cross-modal thinking.
