Floating Garden of Emotions

Asian Art Museum

Stop by the corner of Fulton and Larkin streets on the first Sunday of each month to join the Museum's Village Artist in a free, collaborative, hands-on activity. Every three months, a different artist or group takes over the LIZ to engage the community with interactive creative projects. In February, tap into your feels with the Floating Garden of Emotions, inspired by Paul and Eve Ekman's famed Atlas of Emotions, an interactive tool used to navigate the complex world of human feelings. Translating the Ekmans' atlas into a temporary immersive experience, this whimsical participatory program invites you to explore your own emotional journey. Designed to facilitate a better understanding of our own and others' emotions, this creative exercise encourages us to become more compassionate beings.

This is what SF/Arts curator Betsy Crabtree had to say about Floating Garden of Emotions :

The first Sunday of each month, the Asian Art Museum’s “Village Artist” leads a collaborative, hands-on activity designed for maximum community engagement. This month, the Floating Garden of Emotions, inspired by Paul and Eve Ekman’s Atlas of Emotions, invites participants to embark on an emotional journey with the goal of enhancing compassion. Free.
