GD THESIS 2022
It’s not you, it’s me— actually it’s everyone. Breakups happen everyday and fuel an entire media industry— movies, television, novels, music… One breakup that gets little mention is the platonic breakup, the fall-out of friends. Moving On is a collection of breakups between friends and lovers, focusing on those that occurred in people’s twenties. This project features 60 stories from people of all ages across the country. It is organized by time—ranging from 6 days to over 50 years post-breakup. Utilizing collage and a playful tone, Moving on offers an interactive zine for readers to fill-in, draw, crumple, rip-out, and reimagine, in an attempt to give them a hands-on, cathartic experience and remind people that breakups are another part of life!
