    Research on Emotion, The Body and Feeling
  • Welcome

    This blog is interested in the places where design, emotions, the body, our senses, Spirit and Science meet. What is experience? How do we know what we feel? In what ways can we research these? Emotionally}Vague the name comes from a project I started a few years ago, link below, in honour of those who don't know how they feel: my own not-knowing was the beginning of the questioning. I'd really love to hear your opinions, feedback or general points-of-view.
