The Skin of Things
Within the field of art history, little research has been done into material perception, or the recognition and rendering of stuff. As this special issue hopes to show, the combined study of art styles and material perception is a rewarding and intriguing endeavour for all kinds of research dealing with vision.The issue is the product of a three-day conference in November 2018, called The Skin of Things; A Symposium on Perceiving and Painting Material Properties, where art historians, restorers, vision scientists, psychologists and computer scientists came together to talk about this topic.
