Installation Explores Emoji Meanings Through Sound

Installation Explores Emoji Meanings Through Sound

Art installation recorded gallery visitors' emoji creations as audio compositions.

Ross Brooks

Transmoji is an installation that gave people the opportunity to express themselves using emojis, all of which went on display at the Transmediale festival in Berlin. Each emoji has a corresponding sound, and for a small e-waste protection fee, you were allowed to create an Emoji composition that was played back as an audio intervention during the exhibition.


Created by Kim Asendorf and Ole Fach, many of the compositions were also be recorded along with the audience in attendance at the exhibition, before being uploaded to YouTube. Email notifications were sent out with directions to the YouTube Channel, which also served to close the e-waste cycle.
