Interactive installation artist Alli Berman
Learn about the artist’s ideas and techniques in this afternoon
of art, community and connection to cutting-edge installation art.
“PuzzleArt Pathways to Brain Fitness”, is an enlarged, free flowing
suspended interpretation of Berman’s hands-on therapeutic art.
She created her installation art for public use and enjoyment,
and also for use as an interactive component to her PuzzleArt Therapy System.
Twenty+ years ago, Berman suffered a CVA (stroke),
which fueled her interest in the brain, art as therapy, and the power of art to heal.
Berman worked with behavioral optometrist Dr. Susan Fisher,
and consulted with neuroscientists, TBI and PTSD specialists,
and other therapists to create the first vision and cognitive therapy system
to use fine art at its core. Health professionals in 16 countries
use Berman’s concepts, products, and system to help people of all ages and abilities
develop and improve cognitive function, oculomotor skills, and perceptual learning ability.
Many people can work on 20 different skills to help improve memory, focus,
letter and word recognition, concentration for sports, creativity, perceptual learning,
binocular and oculomotor skills and more for success in school, business, and life.
