Seeing is Believing Highlights and key learnings from First Blush: People’s Intuitive Reactions to Famous Art How good are we at truly understanding what imagery does and doesn’t grab our attention, and makes us care? This groundbreaking book tackles that question by using two unique scientific tools to provide objective, quantifiable see/feel answers. First Blush is twice as large in scope as any study ever conducted before that links eye-tracking technology and world-class art. It also draws on facial coding to capture and identify people’s quick real-time emotional responses to 88 famous art works, across eras, from da Vinci and Rembrandt to the latest contemporary creations. Mediums covered include paintings, photography, sculpture, and ready-made ensembles.
