Janik Neuroaesthetics One of the pioneering works in the field of neuroaesthetics is Zeki’s (1999b) Inner Vision: an exploration of art and the brain. Zeki (1999a, 1999b) explains which parts of our brain are responsible for making sense of what we see and how this influences our visual priorities. Zeki illustrated this by showing works of art ranging from traditional paintings to kinetic art by making the reader aware of how the workings of the brain influence our implicit appreciation/understanding of visual arts, which in turn, he argues, allows artists to create the art objects we appreciate the most.

2009), while the appearance of a series of features, including the repetition of animal images and images painted over surfaces previously worked by cave bears, at Chauvet cave, is argued to be evidence for the operation of mirror neurons in the human brain (Onians 2007). The definition of ‘art’ in a Palaeolithic context is of course necessarily tricky (see Conkey 2010; White 1997).

These participatory artworks underline the indeterminacy and experimentation of artistic practice; though for participatory art, experimentation is experienced as much by the participant as the artist.
