In this ever-changing landscape where we seem to float further and further away from each other, I wanted to remind myself of how it looks and feels to have human-to-human interaction and to exist together. I curated this TEKICA with that in mind, hoping that you will take that feeling of humanity with you while looking at this selection. 


Matej: Can you highlight in short statement why it is important to have human-to-human interaction?

ChatGPT: Yes, human-to-human interaction is important because it allows for the development of social skills, fosters empathy and understanding, provides emotional support, and enhances overall well-being. It can also improve communication, build stronger relationships, and facilitate collaboration and teamwork. In a world increasingly dominated by technology and virtual communication, maintaining human-to-human interaction is crucial for our mental and emotional health. 

Matej: In this modern world, why does it feel harder then ever to have a human-to-human connection that is deep and valuable? 

ChatGPT: In this modern world, it can feel harder than ever to have a deep and valuable human-to-human connection due to a number of factors. One of the main reasons is the rise of technology and social media, which can lead to superficial interactions and a lack of meaningful face-to-face communication. Many people also have busy schedules and limited free time, which can make it challenging to prioritize socializing and building relationships. In addition, societal changes such as the increase in remote work and the breakdown of traditional communities and social structures can contribute to a sense of isolation and disconnection. Finally, factors such as anxiety, depression, and social phobias can also make it difficult for individuals to connect with others on a deeper level.
