Psychedelic Emoji – Todd Gray

This art piece is appealing, and relates closely to our discussion on icons and iconography. The author uses a basic, modern, and iconic Apple emoji, along with its positioning and the colorful background, to elicit this “psychedelic” effect. While it doesn’t lack as much detail as basic icons, the art piece forces you to look in every direction of the frame and absorb this “trippy” vibe (which may be commonly seen by all viewers).
