Assistant chair for digital arts at the Pratt Institute, Carla Gannis, created “Garden of Emoji Delights” for the “Emoji Art and Design Show” at Eyebeam.
Some 30 other artists and designers have contributed to the show, which includes a Saturday-afternoon panel session titled “I Have No Words.” Among them is Matthew Rothenberg, a Brooklyn-based software developer. He built a tool called Emojitracker.com out of a curiosity about how technology plays into social interaction.
Of the roughly 1.7 billion tweets surveyed, “black heart suit,” “tears of joy” and “white smiling face” have registered as the most popular emojis used by users of iOS, the operating system that runs on iPhones.
