Master’s student Dami Egbeyemi has created a way to show us our emotions.

Have you ever had butterflies in your stomach from being nervous? Pressure in your chest from feeling fearful? Felt like your windpipe was blocked while watching a real tear-jerker movie?

University of Regina master’s student Dami Egbeyemi, in the Faculty of Media, Art and Performance, has been working on a virtual tool to help visually explain these hard-to-articulate sensations.

He’s hoping his final project, called The Emotion Mirror, will be a tool that healthcare professionals can use to better understand and diagnose medical and physical conditions in their patients.

Egbeyemi will defend The Emotion Mirror in the spring.
