Esercitare la pazienza

Formazione permanente

Guarda per tre ore un’opera d’arte e segna ciò che scopri, mano a mano che passa il tempo.

What this exercise shows students is that just because you have looked at something doesn’t mean that you have seen it. Just because something is available instantly to vision does not mean that it is available instantly to consciousness. Or, in slightly more general terms: access is not synonymous with learning. What turns access into learning is time and strategic patience.

Art, the scientist showed me, was our portal into the world.
