Aesthetics Wiki

Note: This article is an educational tool intended to improve the understanding of aesthetics. It is not about a particular aesthetic.

Visuals are images that comprise an aesthetic. Humans naturally create memories and connotations with imagery due to personal experience, consuming fiction, and looking at photos and reading accounts of others' experiences. These images evoke complex emotions and feelings of beauty when looked at. This emotional process is often subconscious and subjective, with every person having their interpretation and preferences. Images are then connected to others as they can coexist within the same space and situation; have relevance within a person or community's experience; and have similar visual qualities with each other. This category is very broad and includes locations, activities, artistic works, and objects. For clothing, see Fashion.

This "web" of related images with emotional value is what an aesthetic is. As there are millions of objects in the universe, these webs are a small sliver of what the world is and does not need to involve all of the categories below.

Activities are actions that people repeatedly do. There is a broad range of these, but aesthetic groups tend to focus on the ones that can be romanticized, are enjoyable, or have complex emotional significance. People who are within certain aesthetic groups would pursue doing these activities because of enjoyment in the activity, a desire to improve, or an appreciation for aesthetic value. However, certain activities that are self-destructive, such as hurting others or engaging in pedophilia, can be romanticized.

People in groups tend to enjoy the activity first and then become involved in aesthetic communities, as the reverse could lead to feeling unable to fit in or unhappiness.

Examples of activities include reading, gardening, being with friends, creating art, and trespassing.
