This Happy Monday, a small cartoon army of Cindy Shermans litters our screens. With an arsenal of wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props, Sherman has created a plethora of intriguing tableaus and characters, from screen siren to ageing socialite. Now, New York resident, Hyo Hong, reimagines these caricatures in emoticon format, in a brilliant downloadable series of icons that provides a Cindy for every occasion. Considering her expansive repertoire – spanning Hitchcock heroines, corpses, mutilated hermaphrodite sex dolls and desperate clowns – Sherman-icons make for unpredictable and informative online chatter.
