Smile encourages people to physically smile. Smile reflects on personal interactions and uses visual cues to create laughter for people looking at this art piece. Kim and Park hope this Instagram-able piece will spread contagious positive feelings not only from physical interactions but also online though social media platforms. Behind all the laughter, they want to spread awareness that brain diseases can happen to anyone, including the person looking into the reflection.
