Words for emotions – a fascinating art project

January 10, 2013

One way of understanding what takes place in therapy, is that it is the process of finding words to approximately describe deeply personal internal states.

The Unspeakableness is an absolutely fascinating project by Pei-Ying Lin who is a student in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art

"The Unspeakableness" investigates the essence of human emotions. Through experiments of different languages, sounds, body languages, and the subtle elements of emotions, as well as comparing the untranslatable emotion expressions in different languages with English-based researches on human emotions as a stepping stone to discover mysterious qualities of the unspeakableness between human emotions and communications.
