Mapping Emotion in and around the body

Link to item on Orlagh O'Brien's project at the fabulous Jotta (art & design) website

"Can 250 people describe their visceral feelings of emotion visually, and if so, would any patterns arise? In order to answer this, I developed a unique method of asking people to reflect on and describe their private feelings in a simple, repeatable manner, the results of which could be correlated visually and demographically."

"People were asked in various ways to describe their somatic experience of 5 emotions: anger, joy, fear, sadness, love. The method was hard copy to allow for unimpeded drawing, and consistent colour appearance"
