Abstract Art in the Age of New Media Exhibition

Ruth Gibson, Bruno Martelli

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


This project involves a unique collaboration between cognitive psychology researchers Dr Mariana Babo-Rebelo and Prof Patrick Haggard (Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL), art curators Serena Tabacchi and Marie Chatel (MoCDA The Museum of Contemporary Digital Art) virtual reality expert Kadine James and artist and developer Allen Namiq (Hobs3D).
How does spatial layout of objects within a museum influence different aspects of the viewer’s experience? How does the position of each object within the gallery layout affect how much we like the object, and how well we remember it? The researchers will conduct a number of online experimental studies, using specially-developed art exhibitions within a virtual museum. Gibson/Martelli were invited to exhibit works as part of the research.
