A Residency Project by Lai Wai-Yi, Monti

Close your eyes, and try to see the colour in your mind. Would that be white, yellow, orange, red, blue, purple, green or a mix of different colour? Green has been the colour that remains in my head whenever my eyes are closed, ever since I received a homemade herbal poultice after an accident at the age of 6. I was bitten by a dog at my aunt’s home. It was a sunny winter day. I was wearing my favorite yellow furry coat. I was patting the dog’s forehead and talking ...

Reflections On A Sofa-Bed : Functional Beauty And Looking Fit, Rafael De Clercq Jan 2010

Reflections On A Sofa-Bed : Functional Beauty And Looking Fit, Rafael De Clercq

Prof. DE CLERCQ Rafael

This paper argues for two conclusions about functional beauty, as this notion has been understood by Parsons and Carlson in a recent book by the same name. First of all, it is argued that functional beauty either is not a distinct kind of beauty or that the members of this kind are not all and only instances of the property of looking fit.

The second conclusion contradicts what Parsons and Carlson write about functional beauty, but the first conclusion does not, since they agree ...
