I've been a fan of Jonathan Harris' work for some time now. Years ago I seem to remember linking (somewhere) to his 10x10 project; I think this might have been what originally introduced me to him. In his own words, Jonathan "makes projects that reimagine how humans relate to technology and to each other. Combining elements of computer science, anthropology, visual art and storytelling".
This particular piece, his most recent effort, is actually a physical book titled We Feel Fine: An Almanac of Human Emotion. The result is based on "a database of more than 12 million individual sentences collected over 3 years from personal blogs on the Internet" that he's compiled; it's a visual look at human feelings, emotions and expression. The link (below) takes you to the project page on his personal website where you can view other pages from the book.
I encourage you to have a look at this piece, as well as the other work he's done. Be sure to check out his photo-a-day collection as well; there are some simply amazing shots included here.
