In this paper we propose that a metaphor can be used to represent domains that are not easily quantifiable. Formal representation of the metaphor then can be used as an interface to communicate information about those domains between the human and the computer at a cognitive and visual level. We propose a model, which uses the metaphor of a human face as an interface data formatting system for the perception and evaluation of universal aesthetics.
