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? Through the 5min long Oculus Rift video “Aren´t you supposed to smile?” You can experience a party situation from the perspective of a newborn baby. You meet different characters being carried in your mother’s shoulder.  Some give life advice and other openly evaluate your looks. Allmost everybody wants you to react back at them in a positive way. The early years of every child’s life are not only led by adults, but also by whatever baggage they carry.
