Yoko Ono is releasing a new app and online project called #smilesfilm that will allow users from around the world to freely upload images of their smiles to Instagram and Twitter. Photos from the app can be viewed on global and local maps, and in a film. 

Ono originally conceived of the project in 1967 with the goal of collecting a smiling face snap of every single person on the planet in a single film. "Our smiles change moods and opinions as they radiate positive energy out into the world, creating joy, healing and peace, changing the Universe for the better," she said in a statement announcing the app.
