Project Statement


Early this summer, my photographer friend met a kindred spirit online, and just as they were getting ready to meet, the social movement broke out and the two of them were loaded with each of their own tasks offline. They made a joke which they should meet in person only after at least half of the 5 demands are met. They began their relationship experiment in which they would only date in total darkness until the goal was achieved. To continue the fuzzy impression of the virtual world, the only light source was the flash on an instant camera.

Even to this day, they have dated in the dark several times yet they still don’t know the other’s appearance or identity.
