Emoji reveal the horrific, hysterical life of billiard balls in this art project

When life hands you lemons you make lemonade. When life hands a graphic designer a pool table, they make art.

At least, that’s what designer Jean-Baptiste Le Divelec did when the agency he works at got a new pool table. With the help of Joseph Davies, Sonali Ranjit, Xuan Pham, and Winigreeni, the artist created a set of emoji billiard balls.

Putting emotive faces on the balls adds a hysterical—and slightly horrific—angle to the game of pool, but these shots are simply gorgeous. Enjoy the macabre glory of emoji billiard balls awaiting their fate below.
