Dr Daniel Templeman - Inciting: Seeing, Doing, and the Perceptual Gap

Daniel Templeman has recently been awarded a Doctorate in Visual Art from the Queensland College of Art. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally and has completed major public art commission in locations such as, the Brisbane Magistrates Court, the Queensland–New South Wales border, Melbourne’s CBD, University of Western Sydney, Southbank Educational Precinct, and several works throughout Brisbane’s CBD. Templeman was a recipient of an Australian Post–Graduate Scholarship. Daniel Templeman is represented by Sullivan + Strumpf Gallery, Sydney.

Inciting: Seeing, Doing, and the Perceptual Gap involves creative and theoretical research that explores the role visual art can play in understanding sense perception, and explores its potential for new artistic works. The key question addressed in this presentation is how seeing and doing can differ yet also relate, and how one’s engagement with art can enrich this exchange. The research has pursued the correlate of object/subject as key to the notion of interactivity in art. Both the studio and the textual research explore the notion of the ‘perceptual gap’ as a breach between the object, the viewer and the phenomena.
