Artist Chloe Cooper’s video art ‘When Emoticons Aren’t Enough’

This is an artwork called When Emoticons Aren’t Enough.  It attempts to serve as an interpretation of the myriad of emotions expressed by participants from Westminster Young Carers Service who took part in art:space in August 2013.

Whilst wrapping office equipment, making masks, re-designing outdoor spaces and modelling landscapes, participants seemed to go on complex emotional journeys embracing scepticism, doubt, joy, frustration, surprise and delight.
