Aesthetic perception can be created by using artistic elements in combination with one another to vividly define our enhanced physically identity to others. Our presentation helps to shape how observers think about us. The aesthetic messages we communicate to those who view us indicate how we as aesthetic presenters wish to be perceived. Aesthetic perceptions are formed by judgments of both sentiments and taste as they relate to the nature and expression of beauty.
Our aesthetic presentation is what we create for others to see and to appreciate. Our aim is to transform ourselves with stylish arrangements of costuming so imaginative that we inspire observers to never forget the artistic images we bring into play. We call upon our expressive qualities in very characteristic ways to make our physical presentations personal works of art. Like a pleasing piece of music, a fine acting performance or a dramatic dance, in this way we flaunt our uniqueness outwardly for others to experience.
Beauty is dependent on the mind that perceives it. To assemble a pleasing image we draw from aesthetic elements such as line, shape, design, color, form and texture. These elements must be organized in a manner that establishes rhythm, balance, proportion, emphasis, variety, harmony, and / or unity. The combination of a few or all of these elements and principles is what communicates self-expression and generates interest, ideas and feelings to those who have an appreciation for aesthetic compositions.
The prefrontal cortex of the brain plays a key role in the perception of aesthetically satisfying images classified as “beautiful” by those who observe them. This is the underlying general factor in aesthetic perception. What we perceive as aesthetic attributes are due to a particular type of brain functioning – a parallel multistage processing system, with each segment given a task such as color or motion. It is this neuronal synchronization along with the dorsal visual pathway that mediates what we consider the selection of aesthetically pleasing stimuli. This stimulus signals the transmissions that we, consequently, interpret as beauty. A response that is more far-reaching than our rational minds.
