The images utilize and are keyed to a color spectrum of the emotions by Robert Plutchik, who theorized how all emotions work together to create wholeness in our selves. From his theory, my own data collected through interactive surveys, and specialized mapping programs, I created this visualization of the collective Austin experience.

Help me make art: a Hedonic Map. I am launching a project that will first exhibit at Co-Lab in October 2013. I’ve been thinking about how we each have intense experiences in a certain places, and realize how connected we are to others who have similar experiences in the same spot, or could show on a map where he/she had the exact same feeling overtake him/her.

I want to make a map of those places of yours, of mine, of ours. I need your high-highs and your low-lows. I will create an installation: an emotional map of Austin, a Hedonic Map, so to speak. Austin, Texas: a city with so many awake people and intense experiences; I want to make a record of these lives in this place. Are there patterns?
