Science and Society talk: “Art, A Matter of Mind”

The average time Americans spend looking at a work is less than half a minute. How, in our culture of increasing distraction, might we truly connect with the beauty around us? What does that connection mean to how we connect with others? What do we lose by collapsing our multidimensional world into a tiny, flickering, 2D image?
