feelAment is a study that examines emotional literacy* via digital media and aims to develop tools to expand the possibilities of expressing and deciphering text messages through graphic gestures, a rich and layered emotional legend, and an innovative gesture keyboard. Arien, a graphic designer, presents an innovative keyboard for expressing emotions in digital media, based on Prof. Robert Plotchik’s research. The keyboard allows the user to choose an emotion out of eight basic emotions, as well as choose its intensity and if necessary mix a number of different emotions together. The tool enables greater richness of emotional expression in textual digital media on the one hand and a clearer and effective discourse on the other.
