Kindergartners are taught emotion as a line, a gradient from happy to sad.  As we age, our emotional playing-field grows into a complex plane of feelings and responses.  How can we visualize emotion in an increasingly digital world?

Ripples imagines emotion in three dimensions, as color projected onto a segment of a geodesic dome.  Emotion enters the display like a drop of water falling into a tranquil pool.
