Emotions Beneath
The Surface

Animation + Infographic

Emotions Beneathe the Surface, is a collaborated project done by Arjun Kumar and Huishi Li.

Inspired by the Feltron Report and especially Dear Data, Emotion Beneath the surface is a project documenting our feelings of being international students.

We document our feeling individually for 30 days and edited them into an accordian book and a motion infographic.


This is a graph showing how data is collected. We choose the figure of dandelion to express our feelings. Each feature of the dandelion represents one measurement of feelings. For example, the height of the dandelion represents our level of nostalgia and the number of leaves means the times we contact home for each day. AND this documentation lasted for 30 days.
