Emoticon Workshop: (otherwise known as Nordic Chaud)

Interested in how the attributes of computer software or language can be transferred to and utilised in our physical world, Shaw and Jardin developed the performance "Nordic Chaud - Jump Jump", dealing specifically with the ubiquitous use of emoticons in our online communities and the implications such a communication form has on our real ability to express emotion.

 

This was a conceptual way to present the project. In actual fact the two ladies present an emotional power point presentation during which the audience is encouraged to express themselves through the help of physical emoticon behaviour and pre-selected images
