This series speaks of smiles and the social conventions surrounding them. Historically, for example, in the Victorian-era in England, any smile showing teeth would have been considered lewd and improper. In today’s media, we are bombarded with images of smiles bearing teeth, thus it has at some point become acceptable. The trees in the series show smiles growing from smiles, which is how a new social convention is formed. Smile conventions are bred from the images we are exposed to, which becomes the norm. The landscape represents a nowhere place, as the origin of a convention is difficult to pin down.
