A series of graphic mouth contortions that encourage viewers to observe the spectrum of expression and feeling. It is originally inspired by the artist’s interest in mouth movements after listening to song ‘Brujas’ by Princess Nokia. She wanted to test only drawing mouths to convey feeling. This was later elaborated by using the Junto Emotional and Feeling Wheel.

The color palette and graphics are inspired by the 90s - accentuating the basic emotion being expressed by each mouth contortion. The foreground graphics are ambiguous in gender. The background graphics create a playful, gaudy addition, supporting each expression.
