This is a continuation of the ideas from my last video. In part 2 this week, we examine objective and subjective beauty through a discussion of Shakespeare, geometry, and personal taste. Moving towards part 3, we’re getting deeper into the idea of a universal, objective beauty.
In the Search For Beauty video series I shot last summer, I introduced the series by comparing subjective beauty and objective beauty. I decided not to include the piece, since it seemed to skim over too many ideas too quickly. This video–as well as the few that will follow–are an in-depth exploration of subjective and objective beauty. Is beauty something that we project onto the world around us, or are certain elements of our world intrinsically beautiful? I hope to move closer to that answer.
