Ask any user-interface designer about what they do and they will tell you that what they do is a form of art. Understandably, the visual vocabulary of emojis, smartphone text messages and social media notifications are such a big part of our daily lives that they have inspired numerous artistic reactions and interpretations over the years. One such project that has received a lot of attention recently is ‘Emoji-nation’ by Ukrainian artist and graphic designer Nastya Ptichek, where emojis, social media notifications and other characteristic imagery of our digital culture are embedded into well-known works of art. Funnily enough, the whole project began when Ptichek noticed that a number of iOS emojis resembled the facial expressions seen in famous works of art, and it was only a matter of time before she started playing around with the concept, using the otherwise utilitarian imagery of digital user interfaces to add a new, humorous meaning to the art.
