Too bad I won’t be home in time to catch the opening of this exhibit by one of my close friends back home, Alana Fajemisin of AlanAdetolArts. I will however be able to catch the final day if my flight is in on time. Check out some amazing artwork and her latest interview over on www.buffalorising.com.
Emotion is a complex psycho-physiological experience of an individual’s state of mind as interacting with biochemical (internal) and environmental (external) influences.
In humans, emotion fundamentally involves “physiological arousal, expressive behaviors, and conscious experience.” Emotion is associated with mood, temperament, personality, disposition, and motivation. Motivations direct and energize behavior, while emotions provide the affective component to motivation, positive or negative.
No definitive emotion classification system exists, though numerous taxonomies have been proposed. Universal emotions recognized cross-culturally based on research on identification of facial expressions and several different theories aim to explain the origin, experience, and function of emotions.
Here are my sentiments, my feelings, my emotions, displayed for your viewing pleasure…on found objects and things.
