It’s a sorry situation that we need to resort to gimmicks to help resolve our inner emotions. ILLUMIO here is an abstract model of how we currently feel and are reacting towards relationships and the environment. Honestly I’d rather arrange my face to be a grumpy frown if I’m upset. Going by Robert Plutchik’s psychoevolutionary theory of emotion there are basically eight primary emotions: anger, fear, sadness, disgust, surprise, curiosity, acceptance and joy. Arrangements and colors of the LEDs on the ILLUMIO reflect these effectively.
