borrowed Emotions


Welcome to SEEK Magazine’s fifth issue

Over ninety percent of human behaviour is driven by emotions. Day in and day out we are responding to others’ mannerisms: visual nuances, tonalities of voice, small sparks of humanity. In many ways, emotions have become commodities; products bought and sold; items lost and found.

In this issue of SEEK Magazine we focus on Borrowed Emotions, delving into the peculiarities of what it means to be human. But we are also looking to the future. We examine the experience of disconnecting from an emotional state and our capacity to barter emotions.

Digging deeper, we analyse emotions associated with smell and sound, and memories and dreams. Feelings can change like the weather. Sometimes they creep back in unexpectedly, replacing others, taking on a life of their own. Look inside. Follow your gut feeling into the future.
