These Cindy Sherman icons are perfect for anyone who shuns emojis
Like you, we at Anorak consider emojis, those little smiley faces and mood icons symbols of defeat. They are the tech equivalents to the man in the pub making up his own lack of wit by reciting entire scenes from Monty Python. But typing words to convey out sadness, happiness or disinterest can be hard work. And our therapist says sharing our emotions is good. So thank goodness for Hyo Hong and his Cindy Sherman icons. A set of emoticons with Cindy Sherman’s myriad of appearances from her self-portraits and films.
New York-based designer Hyo says: “I found iconic connections between her self-portraits and emoticons in terms of various facial expressions from one face.”
