One intention of my transcription of his work, in The Garden of Emoji Delights, was to mash up popular historic and contemporary sign systems, and to diversify and expand the Emoji lexicon through this process. Emoji are a contemporary glyph system which offer an emotional shorthand for virtual expression. The pleasurable stylizations are ubiquitous worldwide and across generations. Transcribing visual symbologies of an earlier era using Emoji makes perfect "nonsense-sense" to me, particularly with Bosch’s work, in that his own visual style was so idiosyncratic and remarkably distinct in contrast to his peers.
In his essay “Digicalyptic Realities or, The Frolic of the Flat : Carla Gannis, The Garden of Emoji Delights” Sabin Bors writes …“What makes the Garden of Emoji Delights unique is that the visual communication language it manipulates is deeply rooted in our reflexive and ordinary communication. A double subversion thus takes place: the subversion of visual communication languages, and the subversion of art history.” – Sabin Bors, 2014
