Heart. Winky Face. Poo: Emojis for Everyone

Emojis have taken over the world. These cutesy cartoon emoticons haven't just transformed the way we communicate; they’ve crossed the threshold from our smart screens into our books, art, fashion.. they’ve even made their way onto our plates. In this show we look at the evolution of the emoji, the influence it’s had on promoting diversity and equality, but also how its rapid adoption could spell the end of the written language (insert: shocked emoji)
