This book presents an introduction into the exploration of perception through the comparison of the theory of phenomenology and the Biophilia Hypothesis. The Biophilia Hypothesis provides evidence to support the use of nature imagery in healthcare settings by providing the results of physiological testing on patients presented with images of nature and discloses the beneficial effects encountered. The theory of phenomenology in this instance is by made accessible through the work of Merleau-Ponty. After an initial look at both theories these are then applied to the work of artists, Olafur Eliasson, James Turrell and Sian Lewis to unravel their understanding of perception and the influence this has had on their work. All three artists draw their influence from the natural world which makes them suitable candidates for this investigation. The book aims to gain an understanding of perception as it is presented through science, art and philosophy and come to conclusions about how this information is put to best use. The analysis should be particularly useful for students of philosophy or those interested in ideas surrounding perception.
