Aren’t you supposed to smile?

Arent´t you supposed to smile?

Hanna Arvela & Maria Lappalainen

How do you react when you see a baby? Do you say hello, play monkey or change the tone of your voice? You can experience a party situation from the perspective of a newborn baby through the Oculus Rift video Aren´t you supposed to smile? Different characters greet you while your mother carries you on her shoulder. Some give life advice, while others openly evaluate your looks. Almost everybody wants you to react back at them in a positive way. The early years of every child’s life are led by adults and by whatever baggage they carry.
