OSPFLOR 77: The Convergence of the Arts and Sciences Since the Renaissance

The integration of scientific inquiry and artistic expression is widely considered to be a principal feature of the Renaissance. Anatomical drawing melded scientific and aesthetic goals. New astronomical and physical theories demanded novel means of representation and expression. Complex geometric proportions became integral to architecture, painting, and music. We will explore aesthetic, scientific, and perceptual principles that arose in 15th century Florence ¿ with particular focus on music, architecture, and the visual arts. Students' residency in Florence provides a distinct and unique opportunity to combine historical, cultural, and aesthetic perspectives on the arts and sciences. We will make full use of the city, with regular visits to museums and architectural landmarks, and attendance at concerts and performances. Students will conduct acoustic experiments to replicate and validate renaissance principles including the visual and musical representations developed by Galileo and Kepler. We will study basic perceptual principles in vision and audition as understood in Renaissance Italy and their neuro-scientific correlates as understood today.
