Smile is an interactive installation made for miniMAL, a low-tech media facade created by iMAL. A smile is the easiest form of interaction between two human beings. The installation takes this very idea, but replaces one of the humans with a computer. When the computer recognizes a smile, it makes the building smile back. The installation was presented during Nuit Blanche and TodaysArt Festival in Brussels.

Watch a video of this installation and some of the other projects made for the media facade.
