Emotion collection station


This project is an interactive installation that could be used to collect emotional data through facial recognition.

Emotion is the signal that can remind us of the conflict between our recognition and the surrounding environment. The crucial thing is not to solve the emotion but to find the fundamental reason behind the emotion, the reason caused the emotion, and then know how to solve the conflict. By making this project, I aim to provide a way for users to record emotional data and analyze them.

In another perspective, I also interested in ethical AI, empathy AI. In this emotion collecting station, I used AI technology to analyze facial expressions to get emotional data to explore how AI understands our emotional expression.
