Importance of tenderness

The dominant future narrative often highlights technological advancements, efficiency, and productivity. While tenderness, intimacy, genuine connection & and physical interaction get lost in translation to the digital world.


Yet tenderness holds profound significance in our human experience. It envelops us in a world where sensitivity and empathy thrive, forging deep connections among individuals, and fostering an environment of compassion and understanding.


With “Door de kieren vervlogen,” a layer of intimacy, introspection and genuine connection is added to the digital medium, and thus highlights what is often overlooked.
