Emograms with Love: Art Exhibition by Miklós Kiss

Published Feb 10, 2020

Hungarian artist Miklós Kiss recently launched his first international solo exhibition, ‘Emograms with LOVE’. The exhibition is comprised of two parts, with the first room created around emograms and the second featuring the ‘LOVE field’ installation, a typography-based sculpture.

“The news provided the inspiration for this installation: In 2015, Oxford Dictionaries chose an emoji pictogram (Emoji is a Japanese word, the ‘e’ means picture + ‘moji’ means a letter / character.) as the word of the year. I found this very exciting: we started written communication using drawings and pictograms, and then we constantly simplified these to letters and characters.

After the birth of mobile and computer communication we re-created drawings and pictograms from characters and letters and incorporated them into our daily lives. I put the lost words back into the emojis. That’s how emograms were born.”

— Miklós Kiss
