IRC to show exhibit at USA Science and Engineering Festival

At this weekend’s USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C., the Imaging Research Center will present an exhibit that seeks to help visitors understand intuitive insights.

The exhibit, “See Intuit,” leads visitors to learn about intuition and experience their own moment of insight. It consists of a large black booth with four peepholes, through which visitors will watch short films that comprise different parts of a scene. Visitors are invited to intuit what the larger scene that connects the four short films might be and share their ideas, which will be displayed on a screen. On the side of the booth is an interactive visualization where visitors can see what happened in their brain as they watched the film and reached the insight.

The USA Science and Engineering Festival is the country’s first national science festival, and will feature over 1,500 exhibits.
