Project Beauty: in the eye of the beholder?
There is a fascinating global survey currently underway, called Project Beauty, which examines our views on what beauty really means. The online survey, which is being conducted in five different countries, examines what beauty really means to the participants, in order to find out different peoples’ perception of beauty really is.
The project was started back in 2008 by Marius Hogendoorn, and the survey results which are being recorded not only reflect the multi-layered aspect of beauty, and what we each feel beauty means, but the survey has also uncovered evidence that taking time to consider what beauty means can, in itself, make participants feel happy and uplifted.
Have you every considered what beauty means to you? Is it man-made, or is it natural? Is it a landscape, a celebrity, your partner, your child, or a pet? Is it a feeling of serenity and confidence, a calm in the eye of the storm, or something more abstract? Is it a painting, a sculpture, a building, a tree, or the way the leaves dance in the breeze? Is it a colour, an idea, a feeling, or an ambition? Is it the way someone or something behaves naturally, or can it be learned? Is it dangerous? Is it necessary? Just what is beauty to you, and is there a beauty that lies within the fact that beauty is subjective, and can be as unique as you?
Over 5,000 people have already taken part in the Project Beauty survey, and the results are intriguing. There are certain key themes which resonate across different countries, yet some which are more popular with UK participants. All in all it’s an inspiring window into the way each individual sees the world, and taking the survey is, indeed, an experience in itself. If beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, then why not take part in the online survey and have your say? http://www.b-u-t.net/uk to take part and discover more.
