The Emoji of the Month is a short project initated by Colas Taszek from Mia Thibierge’s use of emoji during their conversations.
It is introduced here as a part of Mia’s essay Emoji, a small thinking guide (under the direction of Sara Martinetti, ésad Amiens, 2019).
Every month, a specific use of an emoji – slightly off its immediate metaphoric meanings – is brought to the attention of a few friend through a text resembling a newsletter.
Those texts were sent on a more or less regular basis for about a year. They are here reunited on a freely rearranged calendar.
