Emoji Center is an interactive art experience exploring the language of emoji, and emotions conveyed through technology. Exhibited at ACT Festival by Benjamin Chaykin at Asia Culture Center in Gwangju, South Korea, visitors to Emoji Center choose an emoji that relates to them, then watch it manifest into the real world. The emoji are brought to life by digitally-enhanced robotic arms, then printed to an official card for visitors to take home and share online.
