The Matching Bench

June 2014

  • Video prototyping

In collaboration with Amalia Goutaki and Claudia Ciarpella at CIID

The Matching Bench uses your online dating profile to analyze your compatibility with the person sitting next to you. It is connected to surrounding objects, which give you cues and suggestions to initiate and maintain a conversation.

This project is an exploration around ways to better fuse online dating with the physical world to re-establish the contingency and serendipity of meeting a stranger.
