Belleza y creatividad en un experimento simple de elección

  • Carlos Alejandro Ponzio de León Comisión Federal de Competencia Económica
Palabras clave: Experimento de elección estética, preferencias por el arte, creatividad, índice de belleza.

Resumen

Este trabajo presenta los resultados de un experimento simple de elección sobre dos objetos abstractos, uno angular y otro curvo, con el fin de estudiar los factores que determinan las decisiones estéticas de los individuos. Se pone a prueba la hipótesis de que el nivel de creatividad apreciado en una obra de arte no influye sobre las preferencias de los agentes. Se encuentra evidencia a favor de dicha hipótesis y de que un índice de belleza puede representar las preferencias del público.
