"One reason for differences in perception is the immense amount of detail available for our attention at any given moment...

Living with Art
My encounters with art are based on the perceptions and visual appearances that a piece of art elicits. No environment would be beautiful or ugly without some form of art. For that reason, I have encountered both beautiful and ugly art. The only problem is that what I may perceive as beautiful may be perceived by another person as ugly. At the same time, my personal experiences with art, either negative or positive, determine my interpretation of the appearance of the piece of art. For instance, any piece of art that is located in an environment where I expect joy and fulfillment may appear beautiful regardless of how the other people perceive it.
