PigVision

PigVision is a Superfiction created by Swiss artist/scientist Raymond Rohner while he was studying at the Centre for the Arts, Hobart, Tasmania. He asks the question “Do Pigs See in Colour?” The project sometimes takes place in galleries, sometimes at agricultural fairs or in scientific meetings. The text on his website (http://www.artschool.utas.edu.au/PigVision/pigvision.html) begins:

Paul Feyerabend, a foremost twentieth century philosopher of science, became known for his claim that there was, and should be, no such thing as the scientific method. Consequently, a methodological pluralism in research should be developed and the mutual rapproachment of the arts and sciences encouraged. To be sure, artists have always had their own methods of research, and, within their fields, they helped to contribute to the growth of knowledge. However, the question yet to answer is where methodological pluralism may lead in fields where few artists dared to enter: e.g. pig science! (see Raymond Rohner)
