The Trust Experiment was a great success! A sincere thank you to my companions of trust: Kay, Alix and Jolie along with honourable mentions: Peggy, Sarah, Sam and Vanessa!
Although this experiment was executed in a small scale, the reactions, curiosity and emotions that the general public had was something very memorable and indeed wordless to describe. Also, the message we wanted to portray is very simple, we would like people to know that trust should be unconditional and based on feeling and not from what we see. Appearances may be deceiving and social expectations have given labels, doubts, misconceptions and fear against people around us. This experiment is to restore trust and rebuild a genuine connection between humans.
As participants, we were feeling excited and a bit nervous as we did not know what will happen once we are blindfolded and what kind of people we will meet. However, all in all we had an extraordinary experience and we truly believe that there is still trust between people in this society but there still needs a lot of work to be done.
We will probably host another Trust Experiment in the near future. We hope more people will be able to attend and feel the moment of trust.
Thank you to all the people who took the courage to hug us and support us during this event, we know it may not be easy for some of you to hug a stranger in public.
