The way we communicate and express ourselves has made some huge shifts within the recent years. Whether we are connecting with a loved one or messaging a complete stranger, we use technology as a digital carrier of communication through email, texts, and social media. Within these platforms, the simplest form of communication is the emoji. This series of 3D illustrations are all visual representations about the emoji and how this new language has altered the way we make human connections and build community. Mixed emoji is a series speaking to the idea that what we portray outwardly to the world is not always what it seems.
