In its ongoing exhibition of work by artist Laura Owens, the Whitney Museum of American Art is displaying a series of porcelain emoji sculptures created by Owens in 2015  in reference to the ubiquitous digital icons. Wanting as many people as possible to interact with these creations, the Whitney launched an emoji pack of 50 stickers featuring Owens’s designs. Unlike the flat, tidy pixels of standard emojis, they appear photographically real like the ping pong ball-sized versions they’re based on.

The Whitney released the emoji pack for free on the Apple store.
