Ilaria Cicali

is a former post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Italian Modern Art, New York. Her PhD is about the works of Archipenko. Further publications include articles on the development of modern sculpture in the 1910s and the presence of foreign sculptors in the Tuscan area of the marble quarries after WW II. In New York, she studied the reception of Medardo Rosso’s works by his contemporaries, and began to develop research on the relationship between drawing and sculpture in the avant-garde milieu, as well as on the diffusion of modern European sculpture in United States in the 1940s and ’50s.
Michael F. Zimmermann (Hg.): Vision in Motion

Vision is not mere registration of what enters, via the gateway of our eyes, from the outside world into our inner consciousness. Understanding the act of seeing as mirroring the outside world in mental images overlooks its temporal aspect. From Berkeley to Helmholtz, from Goethe to Cézanne, new discourses based on the physiology of the sense organs lead to new conceptions of vision not only conceived of as a mental process, but as a cognitive activity. Even before Freud interpreted dreams, seeing was conceived of as accompanying our life even when we sleep. However, to understand even the stream of the sensations, we have to configure them in pictures. Since the 19th century, the media reflect about the confrontation of seeing as a diachronic activity and of perception as coded in synchronic images. The contributions to the volume investigate the opposition of the stream of sensations and the configuration of time – from early illustrations of plants to the avant-gardes, from gesture to cinema, from decapitation to dance, from David Hume to Bergson and Deleuze. The main objective is a critical examination of images rendering vision in motion, without reducing them to the temporality of narrative.
