Memorable & Forgettable Art Contest! Brain Bridge Lab

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

The Brain Bridge Lab is a psychology lab at the University of Chicago. We deal with the bridge between perception and memory. As a part of our ongoing research project studying the relationship between art and memory, we are running an art contest!

What Makes this event different?

Unlike traditional art contests, the winners of each category will be determined solely based on the artwork’s “Memorability Score,” or how well they manipulate the memory of the viewer. In this way, this is both an art contest and an experiment!
