Artist Eliza Nelson’s mini-manifesto speaks for itself: “Emojis mean everything and they mean nothing at the same time. They’re completely personal and completely universal. They’re really quite stupid. And they’re the best thing that ever happened to our generation. They deserve to be observed and worshipped individually. By finding, posing, and sculpting emojis in real life I’ve created a set of shrines to individual characters. Because somebody had to do it.” Here’s a selection of Nelson’s fine work, available for purchase as prints over at her Tumblr, Emoji IRL. LOL.
