Suffering from Anthropomorphobia?

Van Mensvoort
November 4th 2009

Anthropomorphobia is the fear of acknowledging qualities we wish to consider only human in non-human things. Sufferers from the condition used to have trouble mostly at fairs or theme parks, but as designed objects progressively aspire to maintain a human-to-human relationship with their users, the problems become more apparent in everyday life.

If you think you are vulnerable for anthropomorphobia, please DO NOT confront yourself with this interactive staring Mona Lisa-style woman animation created with motionportrait software. Brought to you, straight from the uncanny valley!

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
