EMOJI: THE HIEROGLYPHICS OF OUR TIME, or how I learned to stop worrying and send the risky text🤷🏽‍♀️ - Aarushi Agni

It starts with 🏄🏽‍♀️ and ends with 🎈. Part love letter, part-stand-up set and part iPhone commercial, Aarushi takes us on a roadtrip through space and time as she explores whether emoji are a uniquely universal form of communication or a crutch in a fractured society that has us clinging to digital crumbs of human connection. It will have you like, 🤣🤣🤣 but also like, 🥺🥺🥺!
