Key notions: eye movements, alignment, familiarity, focus of attention, bewilderment, the brain’s need for stress and decline of stress, well-being, health.

The book offers a first theory for the natural need of having art in one’s private environment as important attribute of everyday functioning. Not unlike music, important in life’s focusing and well-being. Ilgen furthermore offers explanations how art can work as attribute of corporate social responsibility.
