Inter-relational emotions within a restricted living-space have been depicted time and time again in the visual arts over the millennia. This "making visible" of feelings in the shape of group pictures belongs to the standard repertory of human expression. Telling examples would be ancient Greek vases with their painted bellies where subtle approaches towards humans by The Gods can be found as well as sexually most explicit scenes. Or think of movie posters where one single photographic shot (heavily air-brushed, I admit) must document the prevailing mood of an evening-filling celluloid reel.
