What is a database of millions of human feelings ?

We Feel Fine is a wonderful project scraping millions of human feelings from the web, curated in what started as an art project and has blossomed into a book, TED talks, APIs and an inspirational journey. I love this innovative take on the implications of new technology and the lens it provides on some of life’s fundamentals.

I love the audacity of their mission and the output is intriguing and creative. Emotions are ‘curated’ into 6 ‘Movements’ – madness, murmurs, montage, mobs, metrics and mounds – not a bad taxonomy.

As they say, the We Feel Fine project is emergent and it changes as we all change, ‘an artwork authored by everyone’ . Big up to founders Jonathan Harris and Sep Kanvar.
