About the Project

#WhereDoYouSeeTheBeauty

sottotitolo

This is a non-climate or cultural based journey around Europe and beyond, which started in December 2017 and ended in June 2019. I have been meeting and interviewing 8 men and 8 women in different countries and I asked each of them to describe their beauty emblem. I have been recording the body electrical activity (alpha-theta-beta-gamma waves) as well as the galvanic skin conductance.

The goal is to look for a trend in the physiological response to beauty. The first moment of the test was an introductory space that wanted to act as a buffer zone. Participants were asked to look at two images on the screen for a minute in total.The second step they were asked to was to look at their beauty emblem, whatever they felt could be identified as an object of fascination, and stare at it for 5 minutes. This moment was asking as a proper attention task. At last, there was a fast recall test: a list of 10 letters was presented, one at a time, on the screen and their task was to remember as many the letters as possible.While not keeping track of the result, it was very important the act of doing the test as an objective meter of the participant attention’ span.

The Analysis

Thanks to the Department of Data Analysis at the Faculty of Psychological and Educational Sciences of the Ugent University in Ghent, Belgium, I am supported in the development of the data recorded during the #WhereDoYouSeeTheBeauty moment.

In the specific we are focusing on:
  • alpha waves (sum of all electrodes)
  • alpha waves (frontal / occipital part)
  • alpha waves (two specific electrodes)
  • beta waves (sum of all electrodes)
  • beta waves (frontal / occipital part)
  • beta waves (two specific electrodes)
  • theta waves (sum of all electrodes)
  • theta waves (frontal / occipital part)
