Kenyon Installation at Illusion

Matthew Kenyon (Associate Professor, Digital + Media) will have his installation, SUPERMAJOR, featured as part of a travelling exhibition ILLUSION, which will open at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on the 18th November 2017 running through to 19th February 2018.

ILLUSION investigates how perception underpins the way we see, feel, think and understand the world. It shows how what we perceive is often radically different from the reality of what our eyes observe. Can we control our susceptibility to illusion? Is our tendency to be deceived an advantage in some circumstances and can we use that very human ability—to see and feel things that aren’t there—to benefit our lives in some way?
