(Groomed Happiness Exhibition description download pdf)

“Happiness is one of our most subjective concepts. Its general definition or its measurement was almost impossible, till this time. The digitalization process and the intensifying online presence made the concepts and activities regarding happiness measurable. This sum of our digital footprints is known as the ”Big Data”. Filtering it means a difficult and an expensive challenge; only worth knowing much about those who consume. Those, who not only want to purchase products, but lifestyle as well. They are the winners of the target segment. With this exhibition we are willing to help them to reach happiness.”

Groomed Happiness is an event combining exhibition and discussions, in which ideas of young artists and theorists join technology, art, consumption and consumers. In Labor Bp the visitor can face an aspect of happiness , through the exhibited artworks and the related presentations.

Opening speech by Attila Nemes
Presentation and discussion with László Nagy (founder of Addict Blog and co-creativev director at ACG) abd Orsi Szabó (psychologist, trainer). Moderated by Mátyás Falvai (writer).

Once we take a certain facial expression on our face, the brain assigns an emotion. Though it happens unconsciously the opposite direction every day, it’s time to take a bit control!

Using the manual by directing your face to arbitrary facial expressions, you can experience a whole drama, tragedy or comedy. At home, in the armchair, or in front of the mirror.

Fortunately, all emotions has been experienced by somebody. We looked it up for you on twitter to have something to think about while you feel, this is why the manual contains a set of tweets for each emotion. Time to move your face and feel!
