In these pressing times, where the corona virus is still present in our everyday life, we can use some mental comfort from our loved ones. Of course, there are many technologies such as (video)calling so that we can still talk to the people that we love, and share time with them while being apart, but there are some elements missing. We do not feel like we are actually close to each other as it is still clear you are in separate rooms. There is no immersion into the shared experience with a regular video call. Thus, making it hard to have real intimacy in such a limited digital space. Therefore we asked ourselves: “How can we create the feeling of intimacy in a shared experience, while both participants are not in the same physical environment?”
If you want to find out the answer, make sure to join in our stargazing experience!
