Abhiman (Hindi): The pain and anger caused when someone we love or expect kind treatment from, hurts us. The collection "Atlas of Emotions and Feelings" is the ultimate Atlas of all uni-versal emotions and feelings that build up our emotional intelligence arranged in alphabetical order. In this series every emotion is represented from a visual manifestation or an emotional visualization graph. The concept for this project, emerged from the thought, that every feeling can be a visual graph, as no visualization is completely devoid of emotion. Every visualization represents specific psychological state and give an intuitive picture of the relative intensities of each feeling, as each visual graph attempt to embody the emotion itself. In every case the de-sign elements are so suggestive as to see obvious. Every emotional graph invites us to explore and contemplate the nuances of each specific feeling. The Atlas of Emotions is above all a fasci-nating examination of the inherently emotional qualities of the visual language used in infor-mation graphics. Basic elements like line and color, however innocent or neutral they may seem, cannot be stripped of their psychological baggage.
