Lovelines

Lovelines is a portrait of human desire.

It explores the emotional topography between love and hate, as experienced by millions of bloggers.

Lovelines presents a stark white screen, bounded on the bottom by a slider running from “Love” to “Hate”, with a draggable heart that becomes scratched out to the point of illegibility as the heart approaches “Hate”.

As the slider is pulled through Love, Like, Want, Indifference, Dislike, and Hate, words and pictures appear that correspond to the chosen state of emotion.

Due to the discontinuation of Flash by Adobe, this project is no longer accessible.
