You Can Still Check Out This Experiential Exhibition Where The Percentage Of One’s Happiness Or Sadness Can Be Determined

 Light Your Mood experiential exhibition at the SM Megamall's Art for Everyone



SM malls have always supported the arts. Who hasn’t gone through a childhood wandering around the fourth floor of SM Megamall, and stare in awe at the paintings from the various art galleries there?

The nine-year-old me would pass through them when we were picking up my sister after her karate lessons at the fifth floor dojo. We would also make a cursory pass in the fourth floor galleries when it was time to readjust my braces; the orthodontic clinic was in the fifth floor as well.

The venerable SM Megamall continues this tradition of supporting the arts with Art for Everyone 2018. The event aims to provide more opportunities for local talents to showcase their artworks and masterpieces.


Featured artists Philip Badon, Ronnie Lim, Pearl Ortega, Menchu Pascual, Boysie Villavicencio, Art for Everyone Consultant Thelma Badon, and Glen Blanco


Art for Everyone featured artists with SM executives


Art for Everyone 2018 was a week-long exhibit, where art enthusiasts, art foundations, along with renowned and upcoming artists, got to sell their work in SM from August 27 to September 2. The event simultaneously happened in 23 other participating SM malls across the country.



The exhibit featured a plethora of different artworks, sculptures, and installations. There where air-dried clay sculptures, oil paintings, digital paintings, and even intricately created watercolor paintings.

We found veteran water color artist Pearl Ortega, with her paintings of bright flowers and other vistas, alongside young artists like Yel Cast, with his wondrous leaf art and unique advocacy for children’s welfare.

Playful installation

At the event, guests can also check out the “Light Up Your Mood” experiential exhibition, which lasts from August 24 to September 4.

The installation is an interactive display that fuses human emotion and technology. The exhibit features 100 glowing emoji balls which shoppers can have fun with as they show happy or sad faces.

A pre-installed app in tablets attached to the installation will measure one’s smile or frown, and then determine the percentage of one’s happiness or sadness. The balls floating above the installation will change colors, according to the rated emotion of the subject.

“This is in partnership with SeekLab, the emboli balls light up and change colors to reflect the shopper’s mood,” said an exhibit representative.
