Who Are You And Who Am I?: An Autoethnographic Study on How Mirror Neurons Guide the Artwork in a Collaborating Art Project

Abstract [en]

This is an analytic autoethnographic study revealing the journey of three scholars/art-teachers educators/artists, working at the University of Gothenburg, exploring the impact and implication of mirrorneurons while making common and mixed self-portraits. Our experiences of this art-making are expressed through chronologically ordered narrative vignettes. In order to connect the experiences with theoretical significance these vignettes were critically reflected upon. We found that the aesthetic responses evoked by the collaborative artwork are complex, including reactions on the artwork’s content, execution and performance. Result shows that we are able to recognize the emotional state of the depicted other, identify with the portrait and change one’s mood. We suggest that it is likely that mirror neurons activates when we meet the other in a picture.
