Emotional Archive is an art piece // research project by artist Philip Lee which aims to create an archive of human emotional experience, to help create a positive openness towards emotional communication.

Lee has been exploring emotional communication for the past couple of years now, capturing and documenting emotional experience, using a chart made up 170 different emotional descriptors, adapted from emotional psychology and Dr Oliver Jones’ Models of Emotion Classification (2015).

The charts themselves once created are presented as Emotional Portraits intended to represent an individual's emotional experience during specific events in their life, or over a particular period of time.
