The central concern of this course is to explore the complex and dynamic relationships between our visual perception and art in the context of specific visual cultures. As far as the various forms of art-object are concerned within the context of specific visual culture, visual perception varies in the most dynamic and complex ways. This course offers a survey across the global culture to study this variety of relationships and how visual perception operates as a creative process affecting deeply the concepts and styles of art. This survey will also provide us with vital clues to understand why visual artists across the globe perceive visual phenomenon so differently from each other.
