I offer myself as an object of affection to passersby; For 25 cents, we progress through a series of 36 questions designed by relationship scientists to generate intimacy. For every individual who starts the interview with me, a Liebesschloß is made with our names to commemorate the occasion. I also advertise on local online dating sites.

In 2020 I established a new physical framework whereby strangers can connect. My own presence is no longer necessary for the work, which has now acquired a life of its own.
