RESEARCH

Numero Cromatico produces artworks, installations, and projects with a structured scientific approach. Most of the collective's projects involve the realisation of scientific experiments on the perception and pleasantness of the artwork, in which the public is an active part of the experimentation. 

Numero Cromatico’s projects are therefore always the result of an in-depth interdisciplinary study of human cognitive mechanisms and arise from the confrontation and encounter with groups of researchers and academics.

 

To date, the group's main lines of research are two: one investigates how top-down cognitive processes influence aesthetic fruition; the other investigates the influence of bottom-up processes in the perception of artworks.
