WE TAPIN so we can be rockstars in our work and in our play. We boldly expose emotions once and for all and take them into our awareness to feel and examine them carefully. We resist the urge to look away, knowing that our emotions are part of us and temporary experiences that when we explore, we are in ultimate control of our success, happiness, freedom, creativity and power.
— TAPIN Mantra

WHAT IS TAPIN?

Shake hands with Fear, sit down for a chat with Reflection, get to know Anger, grab a bite to eat with Regret, and mingle with Happiness.  TAPIN engages participants in the unique power of life's strongest emotions through bold and playful interactive art installations.  Whether you are in the hustle of NYC, on the beaches of Rio, or in the cornfields of Nebraska, you are part of the TAPIN Movement. 

TAPIN challenges participants to delve into the highs and lows of what it means to be human. In doing so we realize we are not alone, build genuine relationships, and find real power to help us better understand the world and ourselves. Most importantly, we unlock the emotional barriers around our dreams and begin to live FREE.

HOW WE DO IT: 

  • Nominate: Pick an emotion we are aching to flesh out and explore
  • Explore: Meet up in crazy cool places around New York City and dive into the emotion through immersive interactions
  • Capture: Use photos, videos, visuals and storytelling to capture our exploration and create art 
  • Create: Design and develop interactive installations that invite people to tap in to the emotion and add their own invention to the experience 

WHO WE DO IT WITH:

  • Kick-ass brands and companies who know the power of harnessing emotions
  • Meditation teachers and centers
  • Conferences
  • Galleries
  • Public spaces
  • Anyone who is open and craves emotional freedom 

STORY BEHIND TAPIN

My world broke on July 4, 2011. My dad – the most important person in the world to me – died suddenly on that day. He was my mentor, my friend, my spiritual teacher. And he was gone forever. 

Books didn’t help me understand the depth of my grief.  People didn’t know how to approach or support me.  In order to deal with loss, I needed to find my own way of coping.  

By documenting my emotional journey through vivid photography, I found my way of healing and The Ashes Project (TAP) was born.  In sharing my journey with the world, people opened up about how they dealt with and overcame loss, and I learned I was not alone. 

TAPIN takes this experiment one step further, empowering others to expose their fears and own their emotional journeys, examining each feeling's intricacies and lessons one by one.  I know first-hand the freedom that comes from tapping in and really sitting with each emotion, resisting the urge to shy away.

TAPIN's mission is to help the world become a more emotionally connected place. TAPIN attempts to expose emotions once and for all, collectively stand to face them and courageously take action to feel through them.  TAPIN is about owning our emotional freedom, creating art in the process.

 - Anne Koller, Founder of The Ashes Project and Creator of TAPIN

TESTIMONIALS FROM EXPLORATION PARTICIPANTS

"The 'Happiness Exploration' that my friends and I attended kicked ass. It was super interactive, and got me really present to the things that drive my overall enjoyment of life; surprisingly it's all stuff I hadn't thought too much about before. The room was filled with great people and high energy. Can't wait for the next one" - Mark Krassner

"Being a part of the TAPIN 'Unwrapping Anger Exploration' was an amazing opportunity to expose such an uncomfortable emotion and one that many people bury. Being a part of TAPIN allowed me to guide students safely into a space where they were able to feel, examine and let go of their own anger carefully, consciously and without judgment. I am thankful for the TAPIN experience that allows me to be part of a community that expresses emotions with awareness, self-love and care" - Amanda Rose

OUR LONGTERM VISION: TAPIN FULL EXHIBIT 
TAP IN TO YOUR EMOTIONS. ACTIVATE YOUR INVINCIBLE.

Our long term vision is to create an immersive sensory exhibit, designed by our community and a panel of progressive artists, to allow audiences to experience the raw sensations of life's deepest and most powerful emotions. 

Utilizing cutting edge technologies, provocative digital, visual and tactile installations, each room of this exhibit will embody the senses of each emotion we face as we triumph over the inevitable loss and fear we face in our lives.  Imagine smelling despair, hearing anger, tasting joy, and seeing freedom. The TAPIN exhibit provides space to subjectively embrace these sensations while objectively understanding them.  We have already begun curating art for each emotion and are excited to partner with artists and organizations to see our ultimate vision become real.  

Contact us if you are interested in participating or sponsoring this exhibit at wetapin@thetapin.org

In a world overwhelmed by information, we pay attention to the things that move and connect us. Individuals and companies are forced to find new ways to emotionally connect to employees, leaders and consumers through the human element. Having self- awareness and emotional intelligence is no longer a personal journey, but a strategic differentiator for professional success.

“How do we decode our emotional experience to ignite our creative edge?”

TAPIN partners with Dev Bootcamp to bring you an interactive experience designed to jolt your senses and emotions and tap into what makes you unique. Through an immersive journey that brings to life our six main emotions – despair, surprise, fear, happiness, anger and disgust - TAPIN creates a multi-sensory experience that deeply explores our humanness and ability to feel, showing us how cracking our own emotion code can ignite us and the work we create.

Curious about what your emotion code looks like? Wondering what emotions inspire and drive your work? Try our Emotion Decoder to learn more!
