In 2009, artist Fred Benenson conducted a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise money for him to translate Moby Dick into emoji. The pictograms have changed the way we communicate irreversibly and a number of tech innovations have grown out of this linguistic development. Amongst them, a banking app that uses emojis to help customers save money, and a bot that uses the cute little graphics to plan meals. However, a new innovation from the New York Public Library (NYPL) rather than seeing emojis as a sign of cultural impoverishment has instead used them as creative inspiration providing Twitter users with fascinating historical and artistic images corresponding to emojis.
