Intensity and Repetition
How much is creativity influenced by unconscious neurological activity? While writing on this subject art-historian Prof John Onians encountered the artist Gerard Caris and found an ideal subject on which to test his answer to this question. This short documentary from theartistlabourer.org explores not only the relationship between artworks and their sources, but also Onians’ thesis that a full study of art practices must accommodate advances in neuroscience in what he calls Neuroarthistory.
