Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, April 27 - May 20, 2012.

Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Prof. Ward Davenny, Dickinson College.

The title of this exhibition, The Necessity of a Wandering Consciousness, comes from a chapter by the social psychologist Daniel Wegner, in a book entitled The Scientific Approaches to Consciousness. Wegner’s text deals with the process by which the mind focuses and jumps, particularly as related to visual stimulus; conscious attentiveness is often at its most elusive when one tries to control it too much.
