I’ve been studying beauty lately, both the somewhat nebulous concept and simply taking the time to pause and ingest beauty in all it’s literal forms. What can I say, God just paints me incredible sunsets. It would be rude to ignore them.
So a big part of “beauty” is actually “joy.” It’s not always a bubbly, enthusiastic joy, sometimes it’s a quiet, contemplative one. This woman, a designer, decided to study “joy” and what it looks like in the material world. She came up with some universal examples, things that cross through culture and geography. So confetti, balloons, fireworks, bubbles, cherry blossoms, sprinkles on ice cream cones, and rainbows.
What do these things all have in common? They are wildly colorful, circular and curvaceous, and abundant. Laughing here, but what if we chucked out the culture’s commodified beauty standards for women, and just went with colorful, curvaceous, and abundant?
