As if the world of Tinder wasn’t strange enough at times, one artist has decided that it’s about time it was a component in the world’s weirdest machine that uses meat to swipe right.
Called Tender, the art piece that is so tongue-in-cheek that it’s practically pierced, was created by four students from Leiden University in the Netherlands.
The art piece is incredibly simple: a phone with the Tinder app open is left firmly in place on a table, while a spinning rod above swings a piece of meat anti-clockwise on the phone to continuously swipe right for matches.
Giving it the punny title of Tender – It’s how people meat , Cors Brinkman, Jeroen van Oorschot, Marcello Maureira and Matei Szabo actually say the piece is a message on how people treat the dating app as a meat exchange.
“Tender is the easy way to connect with new and interesting meat around you. Switch on and if someone likes you back, it’s a match,” says the team.
Things are about to get messy…
