atlas of emotions
a visual exploration of human emotion
data visualizer, developer – jul 2016
This unique engagement paired Stamen and the Dalai Lama up with Dr. Paul Ekman to visualize his research into universal human emotion. Our charge: to distill decades of scientific research into a digestible field guide for the Dalai Lama's disciples and lay people alike to use while navigating the landscape of human emotion.
My contributions included design conversations, implementation of the website, and generative coding to bring to life and transition between the design templates for each emotional concept.
Stamen documented this project thoroughly:
- Eric Rodenbeck's back story
- Nicolette Hayes' illustration of the design process
- Zan Armstrong's description of our work to bring the emotions to life
- My recounting of our iterations and polish work
The project is live here; more documentation to come!
