Female-Seeking-Options

This blog contains reading reflections, experiments, and project details for my current thesis (my first extracurricular thesis) on alternative relationship structures. For the next few months I will be investigating alternatives to our society's current standard: heterosexual, monogamous, long term relationships, with children. This in part comes out of the research of my last thesis "Finding the Wild", as it has been theorized that early humans were actually polyamorous. It is also a personal exploration, as I am re-considering my own goals and ideas around what types relationships I want to engage in.

Thesis Mad Lib

This thesis is my first personal / extracurricular thesis. I enjoyed doing my academic thesis for my MFA program so much that I've decided to continue using this process as a way to further explore topics of interest to me. I will be leveraging the tools and techniques that I learned as part of the MFA Products of Design program, but also adapting the process as makes sense. So, to kick off my thesis, I created a mad lib that starts to describe the landscape I will be exploring.
