The Art Elevator Episode #1 - MC Flux on "What Exactly Happens In Your Brain When You Look At Fine Art?"

podcast Jan 10, 2022




In today's episode, I interview MC Flux, who is a graduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder working on a dual Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and Neuroscience. Flux has a B.S. in biotechnology, and an M.S. in Neuroscience and Physiology, with a focus on the primate visual system. This interview examines the intersection of art and neuroscience: get ready to understand why you might like or dislike a piece, and how you can create greater connection and meaning in your life through art!

During our discussion, you will learn:


  • What happens to our brain when we look at art
  • How our perception of art has changed through the ages
  • The role of mindfulness in forming a deeper connection with art


And much more!
