A student captures the moment when her peers are told they are beautiful. (Video)

18-year-old Shea Glover, a High School student from Chicago, conducted a social experiment to find out how people would react on camera when told they are beautiful.  At some point during the shoot she would say:  “I’m taking pictures of things I find beautiful.”

According to the artist:  "I conducted an independent project, which evidently turned into a social experiment halfway through, regarding beauty at my performing arts high school in Chicago. I want to clarify that my intentions were not to get a reaction out of people. I was simply filming beauty and this is the result. Here it is."

Make sure the watch the video at the bottom of the photo essay.  It is very sweet.

Isn't this an awesome social experiment?  Please share with us your thoughts.
