"My ultimate goal in film-making is to make a film which includes a smiling face snap of every single human being in the world"
Yoko Ono 1967
#smilesfilm is a worldwide online participatory artwork by Yoko Ono that reflects her pioneering vision of the power of mass participation.
Originally conceived in 1967 as a way of connecting people across the world, this 21st century project invites people to upload geotagged images of their smiles to Instagram, accompanied by the hashtag #smilesfilm.
Using the hashtag, all the smiles are collated by the #smilesfilm App, and are then viewable globally and locally on a world map and together as a film.
#smilesfilm taps into the transformative potential of the smile.
Our smiles change moods and opinions as they radiate positive energy out into the world, creating joy, healing and peace, changing the Universe for the better.
"People from cities and countries around the world can freely upload their smiles by mobile phone and computer to the world and its people. Each time we add our smiles to #smilesfilm, we are creating our future, together. Give us your smile! I love you!"
Yoko Ono, 2012
The #smilesfilm iPhone App encourages you to interact in 3 ways:
1. dream - look at recent upload activity on a zoomable world map. Tap and hold on the map to view smiles from that geographical area.
2. watch - view the lastest uploaded smiles
3. smile - to join in with #smilesfilm, take or upload photos to Instagram with the hashtag #smilesfilm and geotagged location data.
The App also includes inspirational quotes and sounds from Yoko Ono.
