Hidden Depths

If you’re wondering, no mammoths weren’t quite* that big, but I bet they felt bigger.

I recently had the good fortune to work on material for the Hidden Depths Project

a fascinating research project headed by Penny Spikins at the University of York and funded by the Templeton Foundation looking into the evolution, role and function of human emotions. Take a look at their project website to find out about their academic research here https://hiddendepthsproject.wordpress.com/.

My role was creating support material and imagery for a set of teacher-led lessons and activity packs developed by Taryn Bell (University of York).

I’ll expand this post in coming weeks to discuss the technical and artistic design choices that went into some of the material. For now you can take spin round the website here¬†http://www.hiddendepths.org/index.html
