This paper describes the Emotional-Perspective design, a graphical-user-interface platform built to explore expression mappings. The platform utilizes emotional and social skills by shifting from representational and discrete to expression rich, contextualized and continuous-sustained interaction paradigms. A remote robot-view, used to control an assistive robot, allows people to take on the perspective of the robot and thereby explore its action-possibilities in context. This view is extended with a dynamic graphical layer (filters and shape-changing mask). This layer is expressively mapped to the robot's 'feelings' constituted by its internal conditions and direct interaction with its surrounding (environment and person). The Emotional-Perspective design will be evaluated to address the expressive mapping and the emergence of meaning in interaction.
