Nice to meat you

An art project on the nature of Tinder, named Tender, cleverly (or very grossly) plays on the expression “Treated like a piece of meat”, and given we’ve had a bit of a dating focus lately, we thought we’d better feature it.

It essentially consists of a thick, raw fillet of meat attached to a stick that spins it around, and as it does so, the gross piece of meat slaps the mobile screen below it, which has the Tinder app open.

And unlike some choosy Tinderers, this feckless glob of meat isn’t discriminatory, swiping every person right for a “tender” match.

The project was created by Cors Brinkman and Joreon van Oorschot, Marcello Maureira and Matei Szabo for their Media Technology class at Leiden University. They wrote in their work’s description:

“Tender is an easy way to connect with new and interesting meat around you. Switch on and if someone likes you back, it’s a match!”
