In this piece - ‘Plutchik’s Dice’ I have explored emotional states. Psychologist Robert Plutchik’s Theory of Emotions classified emotions into eight primary states – anger, fear, sadness, disgust, surprise, anticipation, trust and joy. I have transposed these onto an eight-sided dice where each face represents an emotion. ‘Plutchik’s Dice’ always has one face hidden though you are able to see through from one side to other sides or emotions. A reflection on the fact that life is not that simple and emotions are hard to define and often confused. The octahedron shape makes it impossible to view the dice and gain an understanding of all sides at once – just as it is impossible to categorise a person and their emotional state fully, You are often only presented with the emotions the person wants you to see. Sometimes other emotions are glimpsed but societal constraints mean that for the large part emotions are controlled and displayed as deemed appropriate to the situation.
