Cast an eye over new display

AN EXHIBITION has gone on display at the Peterborough Museum to discover how people draw.

The piece by Catherine Baker, called Scanpath, focuses on how artists use their eyes to begin the creative process.

Modern technology is used to capture the eye movements of individuals, in an effort to explain how they view a scene.

The results are shown as drawings, made directly from the eye movements of those involved.

The display is free of charge, and will be on shown until April 29.
