The entire physiognomy of the face is needed to smile. It is an expression of joy, and among other things serves to contact, but can also be used instrumentally, for example to enforce your own needs. The beginning of this work is an attempt of a smile sincerely meant. The face contorts gradually into a grimace. What should find expression as a sign of sympathy, is lost without a real counterpart. This leads on to a strenuous activity, which is clearly visible on my face.
