Aha, that sounds very doable.

Actually, more simple – just looking for text from chats that say the word “I feel angry” for example. So just scrawling for text and then transposing that text on the image (one of the faces).

HI Evan

Well, I will keep my laptop handy in the studio for Thursday if you come on Scype – let me know your scype address/

My skype name is evan_raskob

Just quickly – I want to find some software (that may already exist) that scours the web/chat programs/blogs about emotions for statement about different emotional states. For example, as the male figure below becomes sad, some statement about his sadness is grabbed from the web and displayed. When the woman becomes sad, some statement is grabbed from the web and displayed.

Do you mean, by searching something like google images to get a list of web addresses with images, than analysing pictures of what it finds and looking for human faces and emotions? Or, downloading a series of podcasts (like ) and searching through them for images of “sad” people (or another specific emotion) and then making something out of that collection of images (a collage? conversation?) Am I understanding this right?

I will see if I can catch you on skype tomorrow.


Do you know how we could go about this? Is it difficult? Can you do it?



Fourth Stage Looking at emotional contagion and how it works in social groups – the propagation of emotions (making the algorithms of stage 3 more complex and networked) – there are a lot more images for each portrait to deal with as well (see below)
