Insight into how New Zealand's capital city feels and an enormous amount of off-the-street participation was the result of a pop-up bank and art project led by Victoria University researcher Dr Sarah Elsie Baker and Wellington based artist Vanessa Crowe. Moodbank was a collaborative project, believed to be a world first, documenting the collective mood of Wellington and allow people to consider how complex factors influence how we feel. At the ‘Moodbank’, in the old ASB bank at 29 Manners Street in March 2014, visitors visualised, deposited and exchanged emotions creating walls of creative expression of their feelings as a giant map, and contributing their data online to help document the public's mood in the city.
