Hungry for Human Contact
Corona the vampire
(58 men, 7 women, 3 non binary)
Artist Dagmara Bilon is stuck at home with projects suspended. She has a dream about Corona, a female Vampire who has come to seek revenge on humans. Sitting with magnified feelings of loneliness, deprived of human contact, Bilon took this rare opportunity to explore the digital landscape of online dating and joined Tinder as the personification of Corona the Vampire.
Hungryforhumancontact webspace is an archive documenting this social art experiment and includes a selection of anonymous chats, transcribed interviews and the Tinder matches artworks. This site is live and aims to follow Coronoa’s "make art instead of sex’’ interventions throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
