Emodus is the first PFP NFT to use only facial expressions of emotion as its distinguishing feature.
Forget laser eyes and mushroom hats, express yourself with emotions which are the accessories of the soul.
A total of 3763 emodus on Ethereum Blockchain, each one is unique due to the combinations of different environments, body status’, core emotions and facial expressions which gives them their “Modus”.
One emodus may appear in a fearful environment with an angry body status, but could have a disgusted expression. Meanwhile, a very rare type which we call the “Modus Extremus” may burst with joy entirely.
Sounds like a regular Monday isn’t it ?

Collection emerged through different interdisciplinary research such as sociology, psychology, neuroscience and chromatics or simply color science.
Early stages of the Emodus got a spark from the work of Dr. Paul Ekman and Dr. Eve Ekman’s The Atlas of Emotions and from the work of Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions.
Most psychological research has classified six facial expressions which correspond to distinct universal emotions: joy, surprise, anger, disgust, sadness and fear. It is interesting to note that four out of the six are negative emotions. After analyzing hundreds of most influential facial expressions which are identified from commercials, Hollywood productions and prime-time news, we have generalized the cues for facial expressions to 90 types. Each of these are defined as a “Modus” trait which becomes a sub-state of the six core emotions
Picking up the right colors was another side of the research. Colors can make us feel happy or sad, and they can make us feel hungry or relaxed. These reactions are rooted in psychological effects, biological conditioning and cultural imprinting. Did you know that a painting hanging in your bedroom with bad color combinations and shapes can make you sick? Since we don’t want to be sued for our color taste, color tones and colors to be used were selected by the opinion of a colorist.
In order to narrate optimum facial expressions, we utilized only the most expressive organs: eyes with a supporting mouth; this proves that to express one’s modus it doesn’t need a nose, ear, facial hair or even accessories! Even though not all expressions are inter-culturally comprehensible, we believe everyone will find one part of self in the emodus collection, since facial expressions of emotions are part of our evolutionary history and are a biologically innate ability.
Project’s Roadmap and /or Current Activities
Emodus NFT Roadmap
We believe that some NFT art collections should pass “we’re building a community so strong we will overthrow the government” or “we’ll be in the metaverse, matrix and also on mars” or “this is the best return of investment ponzi-nomics” cliché.
emodus collection consists of wisely created tiny pieces of artwork with a little bit of science, philosophy and humor sauce on it. Obviously not a project that copying blue chip strategies with clip art. It’s unfortunate that the crowd that has gravitated to it, is not interested in digital art, and has treated NFT space like a casino.
Why we don’t prefer to start this with whitelist because whitelist grinding is an absolutely horrifying experience that creates an artificial community and promotes in-genuine conversations and connections. These artificial communities are fragile and easily destructible.
We hope to create a culture that inherently reflects the core values of a true community. A community where people truly feel connected with each other through these memes.
As VENI VIDI NFT, we are not going to over promise or underdeliver with our first project because we are intended to be in WEB3 in the long run with our holders’ trust.
Therefore 5% of all sales will be kept in the wallet and after 80% of the collection has been sold, one of our holders will be selected by a lottery discord bot to be awarded with it.
That’s not all! We want to make an impact and we want emodus holders to be a part of it.
The pearl of the collection, Modus Lisa, will be auctioned and emodus holders will decide which crypto accepting charity should be donated with it.
Because if we’re not reaching back to help anyone then we’re not building a legacy.
