[EmT]

Does the current work process interfere with the development of new solutions? EmT investigates the process of problem solving using the example of Emojis. Emojis, as transmitters of non-verbal communication, show an increasingly personalized and pictorial development. Nevertheless, misinterpretation and the resulting misunderstandings in communication remain.

In order to question this problem, EmT develops strategies that function contrary to the current development. In a future scenario, non-verbal communication is not transmitted through individualization, but through abstraction. Can non-verbal communication also be conveyed through abstract sentiments, as we know it from music or films?

For this purpose, the medium „image“ was divided into its components in order to investigate to what extent these parameters can be used to generate emotion.
