Artists & Scientists do the same thing; they observe something, analyze their observations, and present their findings in a way that untrained people can see with relative ease what the artist or scientist worked to see in their analysis.
Cognitive Engineering blends the role of artist and scientist into a process of building experiences that evoke responses of some kind. In my practice I work to set up scenarios for participants to engage with an object (sometimes it is their own body) in ways that encourage an oscillation between participation and spectatorship. By participating they come to see the bigger picture, in other words, they think through action in order to understand the work, and by extension, the world.
