Pulse | Shapeshifting emotion visualisation

Pulse is a live visualisation of the recent emotional expressions written on the private weblogs of blogger.com. These emotional expressions are parsed according to a list of synonyms and transform a physical shape shifting object, which was created analogous to Robert Plutchik's psychoevolutionary theory of emotion. Markus Kison is a Berlin based artist, working in the field of digital media art / physical computing. Pulse was created in may 2008 during his diploma thesis in the digital media class at the University of the Arts Berlin. Check the video too!
