RESEARCH

Numero Cromatico designs artworks, installations and projects with a structured scientific approach.

In fact, most of the collective's projects include scientific experiments on how the artwork is perceived, 

in which the public is an active part of the experimentation. 

The artworks are therefore always the result of an in-depth interdisciplinary study of human cognitive mechanisms

and collaborations with research groups at universities and academies.

 

To date, the collective’s main lines of research are two:

one investigates how top-down cognitive processes influence aesthetic enjoyment; the other investigates the influence

of bottom-up processes in the perception of the artwork.
