The (V)ROMANCE is a immersive experience which is meant to stimulate your romantic neurotransmitters. The (V)ROMANCE interacts with the one and only body part where ‘love’ finds itself: your heart.

With the help of this speculative design, van den Elzen wants to start a dialogue about the current way Gen Z’s consume romantic love and how modern trends might evolve further in a (dystopic) future scenario.
