Tinder is an app that is notorious for being a sex hunting ground, Samira Elagoz plays into that idea, while transforming it into something more innocent, a first kiss.
She uses the forwardness and immediacy of this hookup app, and only meets boys for that moment.
They shake hands, exchange names, and kiss.
Age range: 18-25
This video collection shows the moment leading up to the kiss, and is inspired by lyrics from a young Finnish pop star:
“I wanna be your first kiss,
I know you wanna feel like this,
Girl I'm gonna show you what true love is,
I wanna be your first kiss”
