Mind the Door! (from the project Smiling Door). 2012. Installation, mixed media. 250 × 300 × 100 cm, 500 Kg. Courtesy of the artists

Mind the door! is an automatic sliding door that doesn’t open with the mere presence of a person. Smiling is the only way to open the door. If you want to pass through the door you have to understand the way to open it, because there are no signals to inform you about the mechanism. The installation is a metaphor to remind you that you can open doors just by smiling.
