A study on the "zone experience" of leading artists through kansei analysis

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    The present study first examined two leading artists who participated in interviews addressing the kansei during a great performance. The results of these interviews were classified and compared against the "zone" experiences of athletes. The results of the present study show that the kansei characteristics that produce an awe-inspiring work of art have points of commonality with the zone properties in sports and demonstrate that the concept of "the zone" should be adapted to the arts as well. They also suggest that daily, nonverbal communication with nature and a sense of gratitude may possibly contribute to producing a great performance in the arts.
