Example text

Architecture vastly employs image-schematic patterns, such as containment, motion along a path, links, verticality, front-back, near-far, centerperiphery [16]. Dance is a symphony of bodily movements and gestures capable of exemplifying every expressive pattern of human motion [27], and this carries over directly into theater performance [22]. Our musical experience and cognition are built on image-schematic patterns [18, 30]. The visual arts utilize the felt qualities, and the bodily logic, of image schemas and concrete images [1, 17].

Emotions emerged evolutionarily in certain animal species as a way of nonconsciously and automatically monitoring an organism’s ongoing relation with its environment and then instituting bodily changes to serve and protect the organism’s interests in survival and wellbeing. In the words of cognitive neuroscientist Antonio Damasio, “emotions provide a natural means for the brain and mind to evaluate the environment within and around the organism, and respond accordingly and adaptively” [9].
