“Many people take great comfort dancing in the same space with loud vibrating pounding music, especially in their youth. Some having sex or sharing their lives with others. Hugging or simply watching a movie people live empathy.
After twenty years of coding in front of a computer, I lost my capabilities to accept empathy. I feel yoke and in fear when feeling emotions, it is like millions of little particles hit me, it is like chaos, it is like entropy.
My research is a way to describe and represent what I lost in life: Ability to share emotions. I think we all are losing this animal/ human capability. I try to keep a memory of empathy.”
