Abstract/Description

In my honors thesis I will be investigating and commenting on the abolishment of social boundaries for the sake of contributing to a greater cause. I will be working in the media of graphic design, and creating three short novels as well as their advertisements to draw interest to this overarching theme. Each book will present a different social class, and the viewer will witness characters from three different social classes being brought together over a common enemy. I hope to both create an interesting social commentary on the ineffectiveness of polarized groups, while also making this commentary alluring through its presentation. I have crafted these books so that they have a similar feeling to a childhood storybook, and hope that this will accomplish a simple, yet profound message. We are stronger together than apart. The entire show will consist of eight to nine artworks. Three short novels, three posters, and two advertisements, as well as a website, should time allow it. They will be presented in a gallery at the end of the semester, where the advertisements and purpose will be tested amongst a live audience. Should the website be successful, I plan to make it possible to leave commentary on the novels, and have usable data to see if my message is received.
