EMOTIONS
 an NFT collection 

NFT collection currently on Foundation.app

The creation of this collection parallels psychology of human expression, and challenges us to relate with the art on a level deeper than just a glance. Similar to the universal truths in our lives, there are eight primary expressions correlating to colors.

Eight Basic Emotions:

  1. Joy= yellow

  2. Trust = Yellow-Green

  3. Fear = green 

  4. Surprise = Teal 

  5. Sadness = blue

  6. Disgust = Purple 

  7. Anger = Red

  8. Anticipation = Orange

Much like in the world we inhabit today, the more we allow ourselves to feel, the more we gain from our emotions. Alas the essence of the project; the more we combine the eight colors the level of complexity increases in both the expression and allure of the art.  

Primary Emotions

The eight primary human emotions are the building blocks for everything we feel.
