Custom Emoji (2017)

Custom Emoji is a satirical emoji customization kiosk, at which visitors use a webcam to take a picture of themselves. The system generated a set of emoji based on the dimensions of their face. Before they could see the “complete set” of personalized emoji and download them, visitors were asked to provide a continuous stream of personal information (from postal code to income level) and were presented with facsimiles of personalized advertisements. Visitors could not, in fact, download the emoji set, as the set of questions was an infinite loop.
