Three experiments about laughing and smiling, as the world
quarantines during the pandemic.
During quarantine, I found myself spending more and more time in front of my computer. In this weird and lonely time, how many times did I share a laugh with my computer?
This resulted in a simle tracking chrome extension, a try to make me laugh game, and a library of smiles.
01- Smiley Chrome Extension
A chrome extension that track the number smiles as I trawled through cyber space.
A reminder that I still managed to laugh despite the trying times.
02- Make Me Laugh
A game implementing "Try not to laugh".
This interaction detects your smile and takes a screenshot of it.
I thought it would be fun to play "try not to laugh" and see what it would take for me to crack.
03- Thanks for the laughs
Creating a library of screenshots showing what made me laugh
I wanted to know what made me laugh throughout the quarantine. This app takes a screenshot of my screen and my face, every time I smile. It was great to see the source of my laughter.
