Fabricated Intimacy is a platform initiated by Marija Bozinovska Jones and designed with Studio Hyte. It hosts a collection of texts and encrypted content from Technologically Fabricated Intimacy, a research project in collaboration with Dr Alessandro Gandini of the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London, analyzing transformations of the affective social fabric via technologies of the self.

Addressing how dating apps influence the forming of technologically-mediated intimate relationships, it explores what decentralised organisational models bring to dating cultures. As social relations online are mostly reduced to gamified versions of romantic exchanges, a grammar of aesthetical evaluation is applied onto flattened representations of the self and put into play with digital technologies.
