OWN HAPPY
AN INSTALLATION ON OWNING HAPPINESS FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Boldly asking, "How do we find a deep inner happiness that is more than an inventory of fleeting moments and own it for ourselves?", TAPIN, in partnership with PLUX unveils its 2nd interactive installation in a collaborative series on human emotions.

Through life-sized light installations and visuals that illuminate the holistic experience of happiness, TAPIN creates a multi-sensory experience that fearlessly explores the deeper meaning of happiness.  This magical experience engages visitors through unique social interactions and activities, turning strangers into collaborators and viewers into artists, allowing them to transform their experience and the art itself. 

However you own happy, we invite you to tap in and collectively explore happiness from the inside out.  Join the global #ownhappy movement @wetapin and tell us how YOU "Own Happy" in your life. 

Special thanks to our creative partners, friends and hosts: PLUX, AQUA, ROTOBOOTH, SWEET LORENS, PATRICK NASH DESIGN, THE FARM

BACKGROUND

Starting by collaboratively outing their biggest fears in their first installation, “OUT FEAR. TAP IN: An Installation on Beating Fear to the Punch”, TAPIN continues their exploration of human emotions with “OWN HAPPY” to bring to life the holistic journey happiness offers. TAPIN takes the idea of happiness to a place where celebrating deep inner happiness is a full body experience that unlocks the full spectrum of human emotion.  More specifically, “owning happy” is having the power to choose how we feel, relishing the good with the bad, and most importantly, choosing when we own happiness for ourselves.

Happiness is the IN thing.  Books are being written about it, Pharrell is singing about it, countries are tracking it, everyone wants it.  But how do we Own Happy for ourselves?  The TAPIN Crew came together to figure out this very question through interactive discussion and visualization that helped us explore what happiness is for each of us at and capture how we embody it.  This video is a representation of what we did.

OUT FEAR. TAP IN.
AN INSTALLATION ON BEATING FEAR TO THE PUNCH

Friday the 13th of December 6-9pm 2013
First Street Green 
33 East 1st Street in Manhattan

A bold and unique public art installation asks observers to beat fear to the punch in a larger-than-life exposé on some of the group's biggest fears.  

Our ancestors' fears protected them, triggering the life-saving reaction of flight or fight.  Today this primal instinct remains in us and though it still protects us, fear can also hold us back.  

We believe that in exposing our fears, we take the first step in facing them before they get the best of us.  By outing fear in this public display, the TAPIN Crew aims to achieve its broader mission of exposing life's range of emotions to tap into their power.  See how the TAPIN crew and participants resisted the urge to ignore or fight fear and instead warmed up to it, named it and exposed their biggest fears in a larger-than-life video installation.  Watch the video installation and check out the photos from the event.  And if you are really brave, out your biggest fear with us @wetapin #outfear.

One of the participants said of their experience: 

"I never could have imagined being so moved and connected to strangers around our fears.  Seeing everyone write their fears on the canvas, below the huge video projection of people sharing theirs, and noticing that we all shared many of the same fears, was such a deeply moving and empowering experience. I can't wait for the next event!"
