Emotions are abstract and subjective; they occur differently in all of us, yet we all experience them. Historically and traditionally, we use written or spoken language to communicate our thoughts and feelings. But the language of emotion is not verbal.

Fine. is an investigation of how emotion visualization could look like and work. In it, I explore how data visualization could be used to help us communicate and reflect on our emotions.

This work is an attempt to encourage the community of data visualization to embrace the challenge of visualizing flexible and unpredictable data in the work that we do. It is also an effort to reconsider the languages we're using to communicate our experiences.

The written thesis can be found online via Medium.
