Beautifully Imperfects
1/1


Beautifully Imperfects is a research project aiming at understanding how aesthetic perception is affected by the altered production and distribution of cultural materials exchanged in P2P (peer-to-peer) and social networks.
Theoretical framework of the project has been extensively deepen in Web Aesthetics: How Digital Media Affect Culture and Society, a book by Vito Campanelli edited by the Institute of Network Cultures and NAi Publishers.
The central hypothesis to be exblored is that a taste for imperfection is growing in all fields of visual culture, including cinema, art, advertising and pornography: As we credit to truthfulness only imperfect images and sounds, we have increasingly developed a sort of generalized distrust of the cold perfection of the cultural industries.
Beautifully Imperfects website serves as a meeting place of ideas in relation to the hypothesis that our age is marked by ‘disturbed’ aesthetic experiences, so everyone can express their opinion so everyone can express their opinion and post their examples of ‘beautifully imperfect’ cultural products and media objects.

This gesture recalls the question of "tools" only having meaning to us-after it breaks. We are now in a culture of endless broken things and smooth space. It makes perfect sense to like imperfect things in the market of expected perfection.
