(EurekAlert)   New study will study people studying art in museums, which makes museums labs and curators scientists, and emotions and perceptions factual data, and art into science and quite possibly turns division by zero into pie   ( divider line

I wonder if they will "discover" that most people can't look at a painting for longer than it takes to peel an orange, and half the people in art museums spend more time reading the label than looking at the picture?

Therefore art / 0 = 3.142

uhhh subby, emotions and perceptions are THE DATA to collect, if you are studying humans, and more specifically, how they experience their world.

like if this is your goal of understanding, as the byline of the article says, "provide insights into how humans experience the world around them "

then that would be the relevant data to gather.

And we'd just need to take a very careful POV on this to understand, we're rarely if ever able to study a "pure human" before they have received any cultural indoctrination that would have influenced how they interpret and react to things around them.
Most human subjective perception studies tend to discover really different results when they take the study to wildly disparate cultures.

like what we feel fair is, is really predicated on our culture, not a human universal way of it, though some studies may have tried to see it that way, once they were taken "on the road" results carried greatly.

LewDux: Therefore art / 0 = 3.142

For intuitively sized values of 0.

For large values of 0.

In my experience, they stand in front of the painting exactly long enough to take a picture of it, which they'll never look at again. Then they'll move over to the next painting and do the same.
