Aesthetics As Space
According to Ossi Naukkarinen, a living environment that is perceived as aesthetically pleasant improves our quality of life, and we continuously assess the world we live in from this point of view. How things look, sound, and feel makes a difference. But in addition to assessing our surroundings, we prefer doing and making things in order to promote aesthetic appeal. Aesthetic values guide our choices when we update our social media profiles and while we are shopping or dining. This book explores questions about the aesthetic aspects of 21st-century living, giving readers the tools to understand how aesthetics is a multidimensional space of competing interpretations and ideas.
