With YOUR EMOTIONAL SELF, Elisa Roldán Restrepo – in collaboration with Amrita Dutt and Ruben Babu – is presenting AËR, an app that tracks emotions of the user.
Building on the assumption that naming and understanding our emotions could help us heal and respond better to triggers to improve our lives and the ones of those around us, aër uses biosensors on a wrist-worn wearable and smartphone to passively track changes in our brain, skin, voice, heart and other physical signals. These signals then are assigned values that generate a visualization inspired by colourful corals.
Elisa holds a degree in Graphic Communication and Advertisement. She has worked in various fields, including Advertising and Textile Design. For the past four years, she has been the Graphics Manager and Visual Editor at a think tank specializing in investigating organized crime and its impact in Latin America and the Caribbean.
She sees design as the tool to imagine and transform the future. She likes to spot connections, refine details, and tell meaningful stories through design, a poem, or a drawing.

Have fun and give it all, time flies!
Yes. I have learned to analyze and give feedback about a design better. I'm less afraid of having different styles in my design practice, and I am more aware of designers' vital role in our world. I feel inspired to continue helping make it a better place.
To improve my knowledge in UX design
