Intimate Playground

How do you create an intimate experience through a website? How deeply can you can get to know someone, virtually? That’s what I’ve been curious about. Hence this unusual website I’m building..

There’s something about most websites and the way they’re created, squarespace, wix, wordpress, they’re all ready-made templates for you to fill in. The way they’re laid out is made to be organized and easy to navigate, which inevitably makes it feel clean (or sterile), boxed in, and slightly depersonalized.

I think intimacy is the opposite of organized. It’s messy and complex. You can’t easily contain or organize it. That’s why I keep on imagining (or imagineering) this new structure where it forces you to go on a ride and you can’t predict where the next page will take you.

The structure of the site is modeling intimacy itself. And by being intentional about what I choose to share (in writing, video, audio, etc) at different levels of this rabbithole,  I’m trying to map out the architecture of intimacy..
