The Emotionist

The Emotionist is a experimental toolkit for designers to experience the differences in emotional granularity. The project focused on three different emotions to be experienced: courage, pride and confidence. The project has been featured in a paper by Jay Yoon, Developing design tools to facilitate a differentiated understanding of positive emotions (JungKyoon Yoon, Anna E. Pohlmeyer, and Pieter M. A. Desmet, 2016).

Within the project I was responsible for the conceptualisation and programming of the prototype.
