For Play by Feeld

For Play is digital foreplay project that mirrors what it feels like to date on Feeld.

For Play is a digital artwork by Feeld, the first dating app for open-minded couples and singles, seeking to open up the conversation about fluid sexuality and desire. Created in collaboration with Moniker, the Amsterdam-based design studio researching the social effects of technology, For Play connects visitors in a sensory play space and lets them ‘touch’, tease and flirt with each other outside prescribed categories. Conceived as a form of foreplay to dating on Feeld, the experience challenges the notion of a fixed sexual identity and the prescriptive interaction so often embedded in online dating.

Because desire needs a space for play.

How For Play works

Upon entering the project’s microsite, you will be transformed into a floating avatar that both mirrors and completely abstracts your features. Using distorted camera feed that provides both transparency and privacy, For Play assigns your avatar to a digital room where you can interact with up to three other live participants. The multi-sensory experience stimulates sight, touch and hearing and encourages discovery by ensuring encounters are entirely random and organic.

For Play works on mobile and desktop devices and is accessible globally.
