Emotions are our feelings. Literally. We feel them in our bodies as tingles, hot spots and muscular tension. According to the Theory of Emotion, it is often defined as a complex state of feeling that results in physical and psychological changes that influence thought and behavior. How fascinating it is if we could record our emotions and map it? And even share it to the rest of the people in the world. Owi Sixseven created just that, The Human Emotions - a microsite and global interactive map of emotions registered by users.
The Human Emotions is born out of an ambition:
Create a microsite that shows all dreams or specific emotions on an interactive map.
The main idea came from an experiment conducted this year by a fellow named Beto Levy, interactive artist in New York.
We created a product called "Brain Art", which represented human emotions in the form of art thanks to a reader of neural impulses.
It occurred to me that these artworks could become in emotions and compile them in a experimental microsite.
The main inspiration was a web agency by Werkstatt Wundersite called I-REMEMBER. At that site all the memories forming a large universe of particles are collected.
I try to look beyond a simple tend, creating a unique and original product. In design, it is important not to have limits.
The most difficult time is when you handle a project, at that moment, you sit in front of a computer with a blank screen and start thinking. This process is unique. Go outside, look, listen, read old and new books, look at the little details. It is important to give time for this process as it is what will make the success of your project.
"In the end, everything that counted was that I trusted myself". -Tobias van Schneider
Never limit yourself.
