Art can be quantified by its fractal dimension.

Environmental scenes have a fractal dimension too.

A better understanding of how to predict the experience of environments can lead to better design that promotes psychological well-being and activities related to sustainability.
Then conduct a fractal analysis using the box dimension method to find the fractal dimension, D...

Proposed Methodology

Hypothesis

Augustin, Sally

Hagerhall, Caroline et al.

Taylor, Richard et al.

Background

The Savannah Hypothesis
The fractal dimension, D, can be used to quantify a visual scene and be used to predict human environmental preference.

Fractals in Human
What is a fractal?

Watch Mandelbrot's Ted2010 talk on fractals...
Orions, 1980, 1986
See Taylor explain...
To predict preference, start with a scene like this...
Environmental Preference.

How can the fractal dimension
be used to predict environmental preference?
Neuroscience
Evolutionary Biology
Mathematics
Psychology
The study of fractals, visual perception, and behavior is interdisciplinary.
This image has a fractal D value of 1.24; thus, it is likely to be rated as a preferred scene. Preference can be measured by viewer report, eye-tracking, and other physiological responses.
