Empathy Totems

Empathy Totems are data sculptures that visually represent personal information to be used as a non-verbal communication tool. These objects are part of a study that explores how to understand and communicate information by conveying data through physical objects. The Empathy Totems will enable people to gain a better understanding of their own emotions while expressing them in a physical environment.
