human eye
Visual perception of an artist
7 April 2007

I recently came across an interesting article. The Artists look different is based on expertise in pictorial perception: Eye-movement patterns and visual memory in artists and laymen by Vogt, S. & Magnussen, S. (2007).

Basically the article describes the difference between how artists and non-artists look at pictures and how much they remember of them. What I found surprising was how much non-artists spent looking at the human figure or face. The article illustrates this with an eye tracking study done over two pictures. The other interesting aspect is the graph displaying the percent of time looking at key areas for artists and non-artists. I actually thought that artists would spend more time when looking to remember, but they did not.
