Résumé

Emojis are a form of electronic communication found in text messages that fundamentally alter the exchange of emotion. Images and signs that depict feelings have replaced the nuanced selection of the right words and phrases. However, where feelings subside once expressed, emoticons transcend the spatio-temporality of emotion in ways that can become recurrent acts of aggression and bullying that are impossible not to see and even harder to erase. Across the globe, the expressive range of human emotion through the static ideogram of the emoji, or emoticon, presents an increasing challenge for the visually immediate, non-verbal exchange of capricious emotive communication.
