ECU faculty research draws attention in Charlotte museum

Research by East Carolina University faculty at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte was featured in the museum’s blog at http://nashermuseumblogs.

Dr. Cynthia Bickley-Green, associate professor in the School of Art and Design, and Dr. Nicholas Murray, director of the Visual Motor Laboratory in the College of Health and Human Performance, developed the research. The study tracks eye movement in response to artwork, exploring relations between oral prompts, cognition and eye-tracking patterns.  A qualitative questionnaire gathers information about the beholders’ aesthetic response to the experience.

The study is part of a larger group of museum and gallery studies that began in the Greenville Museum of Art. It is entitled “Mobile Eye-Tracker (MET) Gaze Patterns Generated by Artworks and Museum Locations.” Results should provide data that may help researchers understand people’s thinking patterns, which could be applicable for related disabilities and overall improved communication.
