Depending on whom you ask, emoji can be anything from a casual way to keep in touch with friends, an artistic medium all their own, or even a universal human language. For Scottish photographer Heather Adamson, emoji are the source material and inspiration for her photographs. She recreates your favorite emoji out of food, photographs them, and puts them on Instagram.
You can see all of Adamson’s edible emoji creations by checking out the #EmojiOatmealChronicles hashtag (though not all of the food items are oatmeal).
Adamson’s website has plenty more food photos and videos, emoji and otherwise.
