1 COGNITIVE COMPLEXITY in the VISUAL ART STUDIO Faculty Seminar Oct. 10, 2013

2 DISTINCTIVES OF ART-MAKING Sensory Perception (aesthetics Baumgarten, Appelbaum) Active Embodied Materialized Experiential Multiple Ways of Knowing (Elliot Eisner)

3 COGNITIVE COMPLEXITY Integrates reason with affect, intuition + sensory perception (Nussbaum); Extends attention (Weil); Suspends categorization, interupts preperceptions (James); Imagination (Greene), Collaboration, non-verbal communication…

4 FLEXIBLE PURPOSING “the intelligence required to shift direction mid process in response to what is happening in the course of the work” (Dewey). Risk-taking, pursuing surprising, new and unknown paths and solutions are active art-making practices and are necessary for discoveries in all fields (Eisner).

5 TRANSMEDIATION shifting information between forms of representation (sign systems) results in a cascade of new meanings and connections (Siegel ). semiotic process of moving across sign systems is a generative process- productive of new meanings (Suhor ). Suhor suggests symbol-making and manipulating eclipses language use as humanities’ most characteristic trait Interest from medical education (Bleakley et all (2006); Katz, Newell and Hanes; Vladescu et al).

6 SENSE-MAKING Historical, critical, theoretical integration with lived experience; Embodied awareness, sense perception, imagination + reason; Affect, intuition + intellect; Unknowing + knowing; Catharsis; Means by which we come to understanding; Materialized experiential rather than propositional;
