Many museums, artwork exhibitions and galleries are searhing for new languages to teach the viewers their masterpieces. This essay is a technical resolution to this need.
The language proposed this is the sub-symbolic language of the neural networks, that is in accordance with the bottom-up method.
The merits of such method are as follows:

a) The that means of a piece emerges gradually from its actual, perceptive and sensible elements in accordance with the self-generating precept of the dynamic systems;
b) the distance language of the murals is reworked right into a sequential tale. for that reason within the conventional visible arts the time dynamics breaks in;
c) The “conversion” of 1 language into the opposite occurs via specific neuroscientific standards, varied from the unfastened interpretations of the creative;
d) the entire narration is configured based on a cluster research, said within the final pages of this essay.


Nicola Colecchia, previous researcher of basic Psychology at the collage of Bologna, now directs Synapticart, Laboratory of paintings and technological know-how (, the place particular study on artistic and comprehension procedures of paintings works (paintings, layout, installations, structure) is conducted.
Through an interdisciplinary technique in response to the self-generating precept of neural networks, he has elaborated works through nice artists of a long time and locations intentionally assorted from one another, on the way to spot almost certainly universal expressive mechanisms of their languages, regarded as a part of a sub-symbolic language, which function beneath the stylistic and historic-cultural configurations in their works.

Research has mentioned that the artists analyzed ( between whom Leonardo, Tiziano, Mirò, Magritte, Beuys, Weston, Pesce, Piano, Cattelan, Hirst and others) have intuitively created a few sub-symbolic mechanisms to augment the horny strength in their masterpieces. in reality the sub-symbolic language is “automatically” produced and understood either by means of the artist and via the observer’s of the paintings since it relies on an in-born code , which comprises everybody’s brain and physique, unbeknown to them.
