Eye Tracking: From Affect to Concept

Eye Tracking: From Affect to Concept

Eye movements are subconscious and intuitive determinations which are often characterised as aleatory but which, upon examination through eye tracking, appear to demonstrate a narrative logic that sidelines the rational and engages the affective through a perceptual semiotics. When we look, where do we look to and what do we look for? How does conceptual knowledge arise from non-rational, experiential determinations? Our speculative approach to interpreting eye tracking attempts to posit an empirical foundation to concepts from Spinoza, Peirce, James, Bergson, and Deleuze and Guattari. We present a series of slides as teasers for our paper presentation on Tuesday, 19 October, 15:00 Durban Time.
