Emoticons are part of our digital daily life, but what if they burst into our physical environment? What if they were not just a replacement for the written word, but creatures looking for a place in society?

These special characters seem to play such an important role in modern communication, we need them to convey the true meaning of our messages.
This nature documentary parody, by Dissolve, examines the impact of this digital species. Collateral effects of today’s visual culture explained in a video that will make you smiley.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
