Here & There
Graphic artwork from a set of prints created by London-based design consultancy BERG. The set depict 3D projections of Manhattan (Downtown & Uptown) by removing the horizon and skewing the entire urban landscape with all its buildings and streets upward.
This Is Where You Feel Your Feels
Are our emotions universal, across borders of culture and language? Is my happy the same as your happy? Do I experience anger in precisely the same way that you do?
Psychologically speaking, that’s a difficult question to answer. But according to a new study on the physiological experience of emotions, our bodies respond in very particular ways to a range of feelings.
Hundreds of people were presented with various images designed to cause an emotional response. The participants then indicated where on their bodies they felt increased (orange and yellow, above) or decreased (blue, above) sensation, essentially drawing a kind of atlas of emotional response.
The results are pretty interesting, and nice to look at as well. I have to wonder why contempt causes that very specific lack of sensation south of the border, though.

Chromeography: Metal logos and lettering
Stephen, who featured in 8 Faces #2 and whose book The Geometry of Type we reviewed on Type worship, has been running the blog on tumblr since 2009. The collection of letters led to an exhibition last year at Mota Italic in Berlin and with it the creation of the Chromeography logo in collaboration with Laura Serra (another 8 Faces contributor ).
The myriad of myriad of lettering and logo are collected from all over the web with some shots by Coles. Not just vintage cars either but cameras, refrigerators, typewriters, and I even spotted a gun.
