The Art and Science of Embarrassment
Soomi Park, MAT Student
This seminar is an introduction to psychology studies and art/design projects that have played with embarrassment. People can experience embarrassment whenever they meet undesired events while socialising. Embarrassment has been explored in numerous studies in the field of psychology since, as an emotion, it plays a critical role in social interaction and communication. Also, embarrassment has been used to create various art and design projects that discuss social, moral and ethical issues in everyday life. In this seminar, I will introduce psychological studies and art/design projects that demonstrate different methodologies to engage with embarrassment, and explore the diverse aspects of this emotion.
