"A Million First Dates" Editorial Spread

  • Student project / The Pennsylvania College of Technology: mockup of an editorial spread for the fictional article,
    "A Million First Dates: How Online Romance is Threatening Monogamy"
     
    I wanted to create a spread that could possibly appear in a high-end art and culture magazine that would encompass the commercial aspects of the internet, specifically in the eighties, and the destruction of cultural aspects it has brought.
     
    I juxtaposed digital speech bubbles over duo-tone classical art from the Rococo period, a time in which idealized scenes were created in art with deeper and more questionable intent embedded therein. The paintings appear to be melting off of the print pages, a form of communication that is constantly accused of becoming obsolete due to technological advances.
