Do technological advances help or hurt intelligence?
use to underline the variety of beauty and perception. This quote had not been scientifically proven as it was first written down in a novel by Hungerford in 1878 and since then it had been interpreted as a true fact which is not the case. Studies showed that there is the same fundamental understanding of beauty in human beings (Sagmeister & Walsh, 2018, p.118). Beauty is in fact more than a subjective opinion, it is a principle that changes emotions and influences behaviour (Sagmeister & Walsh, 2018, p.152). The architect Louis Sullivan changed the design understanding completely with his principle of “form follows function”. This principle explained that every design and its shape and structure should be influenced and created based on its function only. This principle was mainly visible in architecture which led to house complexes being built based on functionality, which in the end were not used as people did not want to live in there (Sagmeister & Walsh, 2018, p.59,62). One of Louis Sullivan’s colleagues Frank Lloyd Wright reinterpreted the meaning behind this principle and added that Form and Function should unite to create a balance in between (“Form Follows Function”, 2016), which Sagmeister & Walsh also wrote down in their Manifest. Additionally to that, Sagmeister & Walsh underline that beauty itself is not enough as well as function itself is not either (Sagmeister & Walsh, 2018, p.268). The best example of form replacing function is the Juicy Salif by Philippe Starcks from 1990. This product was beautiful but did not fulfill its purpose which started a big controversy around it and its design in general. Starcks wanted to create something that was more than a kitchen utensil. He created an aesthetically pleasing sculpture, that was being invested in regardless of its lack of function (Sagmeister & Walsh, 2018, p.90f). One study from Dr. Helmut Leder concluded that the human understanding of beauty happened subconsciously. His research found out that showing Alzheimer patients a series of artworks and pictures and let them rate the images from most appealing to least. No patient had issues following the instructions. The test was repeated a few weeks later and the results where the same even though the patients did not remember taking the test in the first place (Sagmeister & Wa>GET ANSWER
