A Piece of Work

Questlove Hearts Emojis

av A Piece of Work | Publicerades 8/7/2017

Emojis, video games, even the humble “@” symbol -- all these staples of digital life have been as carefully designed as the most sleek furniture or fancy architecture. But do they belong in a museum? Hell yes, says Abbi’s friend Ahmir Thompson (a.k.a. Questlove, and emoji obsessive). If you find yourself wondering if it’s allowed, “then it's pretty much high art,” he says.

Also featuring: Paola Antonelli
