Eftychia Stamkou is setting up new project on the emotions portrayed in visual art in collaboration with Google Arts & Culture (https://artsandculture.google.com/), Hume AI (https://hume.ai/), and UC Berkeley Psychology! For more updates on this – stay tuned!
A previous project together with Google Arts and Culture and Hume AI was the Atlas of Emotion. In this project, the scientists asked 1,300 people to describe how 1,500 paintings make them feel by choosing from different words. The results revealed 25 different emotions that people linked to the artworks they saw. These feelings on an interactive map, grouping artworks that triggered specific emotions.
