Smile  :-), wear it like a costume  - New York

Greene Naftali Gallery NY, 2017

What happens if a businessman smiles like a nursery school teacher or vice versa? 

In this project, I have decided to investigate what I call the “professional smile.” I believe that each profession has their way of smiling to communicate and negotiate with clients and customers. I regard it as a part of the costume of the work world, an aspect of professional behavior. I create an interactive sculpture. 

A viewer can take a picture of their blank face, select a smile of “Caregiver” “Entertainer” “Service Business” “Corporation” and apply on their face as if their work costume.
