Real beauty

Agency Network: 
September 2016


Carried out for the first time with men only, this new experiment shows their reactions when describing different women’s beauty projected on a screen. Filmed in an apparently abandoned warehouse, the mysterious environment is reinforced by the fact that participants’ heart rates are monitored in real time.
Models are in the first sequence of projected pictures, generating only superficial praise related to their physical characteristics. In the second sequence, images of special women are unexpectedly shown to the participants, such as a partner or a family member. From this point on, emotion takes over the experiment. Memories and feelings like love, affection, gratitude and admiration come associated with the descriptions. At this moment, the considerable increase in heart rate leaves no doubt – real beauty, literally, touches the heart.
