After watching this movie i began to think about how culture influences design in both positive and negative ways. Some positive ways of culture and design are the fact that both influence us in a personal way from the way we feel about experiences to the way we experience them. Without culture and religion all of our day to day activities would be meaningless and unnecessary since there was no reason for why we were doing them. This also has a negative aspect to it because sometimes like in ,Babette Feast, people get so caught up in their own culture they become afraid of other ways of doing things and tend to live in their safe little world not experiencing anything new. Therefor we must create a happy medium between design and culture so we do not allow ourselves to live in a sheltered little box hiding from the world around us.
