Snem Yildirim’s Daily Prescriptions are as complex as the emotions that each emoji characterizes. The holographic smiles and winks shift as they move around the room, never quite sure which expression they are meant to maintain. If you aren’t certain which emotion you are meant to feel, you may as well feel them all. Yildirim’s emoticon-based expressive blanks break from the should and the prescribed, and instead place a wearable and ever mutable response to the pained question of “How are you?”
