“emoji_deconstructed” 2022-2024 is a small series of draft images from 2022 rediscovered in a hidden corner of my hard drive and developed 2 years later. Sheets of emojis, sourced on the web, appear as deconstructed surface textures and bump maps; eroded and sometimes interacting with particle system/s. Imagined to be discovered at some point in the future, illuminating today’s ubiquitous network-communication messages.

Images are rendered to print upto approx 50 cm wide
