About Niki Selken

Niki Selken 👩🏻💻 is an artist, technologist and educator. Her work focuses around storytelling, games and interaction design. She is the Creative Development Lead at in the Gray Area where she manages the artist incubator and creative code education programs. She founded the Emoji Foundation, created the Emoji Dictionary, and VR game EmojiFlower VR. Niki attributes her intuitive understanding of the translation and meaning of Emoji to her extensive Japanese stationery collection and study of Japanese Butoh and Noh theater. Because of the confinement experienced due to COVID, Niki started creating dreamscapes or unattainable landscapes that combine photos of far off places and layered with impossible weather patterns, waving rainbows, and even shimmering hair - See Unattainable Landscapes via @nikistyxx on Instagram. When she is not expanding her Emoji Empire she enjoys designing and playing games, Karaoke and of course, using Emoji. 😎 🍕 ❤️

 Her Emoji project, The Emoji Dictionary, debuted in New York City at The Proof is in the Processor art show and was featured at Currents New Media Art Festival 2015 in Santa Fe. In 2014 she won New York NASA Space Apps and placed as a global finalist for wearable tech project, Senti8. Her game, Find Maria Rivera was exhibited and selected as an Award Finalist at Indiecade 2015. In 2016 she was selected as a Kill Screen game design scholar and Parsons E-Lab fellow for her Augmented Reality platform, Wayscape. Niki's design and Emoji work has been featured by Yahoo Tech, Adafruit, Buzzfeed and Make Magazine among others.
