Many museums, paintings exhibitions and galleries are searhing for new languages to teach the viewers their masterpieces. This essay is a technical solution to this need.
The language proposed here's the sub-symbolic language of the neural networks, that is according to the bottom-up method.
The merits of such procedure are as follows:

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


Nicola Colecchia, earlier researcher of basic Psychology at the collage of Bologna, now directs Synapticart, Laboratory of artwork and technology (, the place particular examine on inventive and comprehension tactics of artwork works (paintings, layout, installations, structure) is performed.
Through an interdisciplinary procedure in keeping with the self-generating precept of neural networks, he has elaborated works by means of nice artists of a long time and areas intentionally various from one another, which will 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 way of the artist and by means of the observer’s of the paintings since it is predicated on an in-born code , which consists of everybody’s brain and physique, unbeknown to them.
