Researching Emotions in the Body

A unique research methodology was developed as part of my Masters studies. It sought to understand how people describe their experience of emotion in the body. 250 participants of various ages and nationalities were asked to draw their experience of emotion in various ways. The results are registered, made semi transparent and assembled in Photoshop. The darker areas show the highest frequency in particular areas.

All drawn answers to this survey, from 250 people, were assembled and layered in photoshop, and made semi-transparent. 
Anger: "Where in the body do you feel anger. Pick one spot only."
Anger: "Where in the body do you feel anger?"
Draw anything you wish (left). Do you feel direction? If yes, draw arrows (right)
