Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Foster, David
Abstract:

Using the principles of Iterative and Human Centred Design as methodologies, gaze-tracking equipment and techniques and analysis of writings in such areas as medical, neurological and psychological studies in the visual perception process, the principles of mindfulness and mindful meditation, Trompe L’oeil painting and camouflage, this project will observe the saccade/fixation patterns of study participants viewing multiple different photographic images in an attempt to build a database of saccade/fixation patterns.
The use of gaze tracking and high definition display may demonstrate that there is a common eye movement pattern and perhaps that the viewer’s personal visual perception system may hide or omit much of the detail in any scene. If present, a common eye track has implications in multiple areas including urban and industrial design, visual arts, police/criminal witness investigations and social/cultural attitudes.
