Conceptual Art

This piece of conceptual art by Yoko Ono, A Box of Smile is a chrome box engraved with the words “A BOX OF SMILE”.  The box opens to a mirror inside.  This piece is not particularly meant to have aesthetic beauty but the importance of the meaning behind it.  I feel that the artist is saying that all you have to do is smile and you will have all the “smile” that you need.  You don’t need to acquire smiles you just need to be happy and look at yourself in the mirror to see a smile.
