Updating the Surrealist movement (2013-2016)

“Updating the Surrealist movement” is an art and science project developed during Albert’s PhD thesis at City, University of London. What do Cognitive Science and Surrealism have in common? Surrealism was considered as pure psychic automatism, by which one proposes to express, either verbally, in writing, or by any other manner, the real functioning of thought. Dictation of thought in the absence of all control exercised by reason, outside of all aesthetic and moral preoccupation. This work proposes a reinterpretation-actualisation of the surrealist movement through the contemporary research knowledge in Cognitive Science. It has been awarded by the Cambridge Neuroscience Society (UK) and the SciArt Center of New York (USA); exhibited at University College London (UK) and City, University of London (UK); received funds from the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies; and presented at Pint of Science Festival (UK) and TEDxYouth Barcelona (Spain).
