A summary in Matt Brown’s own words about his talk, The Energy Theory of Color:

Two years ago Prof. Ming Meng and I met and began conversations on the subject of visual thinking. Prof. Ming Meng is a professor of psychology specializing in visual perception who used to teach at Dartmouth College. This Spring, through a set of coincidences, Prof. Meng and I engaged in a fuller exploration of tour dialogue. Ming and I are now 75 pages into a book project called The Energy Theory of Color.  We have been doing weekly and bi-weekly Zoom discussions with others on the topic, a conversation built around questions of the nature of visual thinking and visual perception.   

Ming and I combine two very different ways of looking at our shared visual experience, the viewpoint of the scientist and the viewpoint of the artist.  Our dialogue has been fascinating for us; we are seeking ways to share some of what we’ve come up with.


The talk and the book will cover subjects such as:

Energy and Color,
Color Constancy,
Sensory Fading,
Predictive Coding,
Theory of Mind,
Ventral and Dorsal Pathways,
