This beauty, inspiring revelation rather than awe, is more accessible to the layman and the tradesman than to the connoisseur. Indeed, I would argue the assignation “beautiful” stands in for pleasure, the quotidian pleasure of seeing something work: of understanding the mechanical relations of bodies, organic and inorganic, in concert, in space. And in understanding the mechanics of the form I presume a certain confidence in the mechanics of my own physical form and this is reassuring, especially given the doubt cast upon it (bodily surety) by everything else.
