The End of Emotional Privacy

The End of Emotional Privacy is a bodysuit that reads and stores people's emotions.

The project applies infrared sensor technology to simulate thermal vision and 'read' emotions. By standing in front of it, the user's emotions are read and mapped as heat into the back of the bodysuit. This emotional heatmap is then stored and visualized on a computer next to it. In a context of growing concern over data privacy, where corporations know who we are and what we want, The End of Emotional Privacy suggests a future in which our emotional states are monitored, manipulated and monetized.
