These reactions are our bodies’ responses to our environment, while it smell, touch, taste or listen. Designers look at these sensory inputs to evoke feelings. Neuroaesthetics, a scientific field of study that explores the effect of aesthetic experiences on human intellect, provides insight into which inputs elicit specific answers. It is the reason your heartbeat may change why your energy level may shift dependent on the colors around you and when certain fabrics touch.
The exhibit, built along with Muuto Design, Reddymade Architecture and the International Arts + Mind Lab is made up of 3 spaces supplied to look like rooms in a House. There is more than meets the eye in the layout experience.
When guests see”A Space for Being,” we ask them to place on these specially-made rings that capture how they respond to each room. Before their information is deleted in the group, each user receives a customized printout describing the distance where they felt most”at ease” Photo credit: Maremosso Studio.
Do you have music that helps you unwind after a long day? Is there a odor that transports you back? Or does a gentle help as you sit down to see you feel calmer?
