Description

Designer's statement: M4M is a personal narrative developed alongside a set of original ideographic symbols that serve as a conceptual reflection of digital communication and interaction in the gay community.Through my own experiences, observations, interviews, and study of symbols and culture I created an abstracted, yet singular, curated series of media projects that expose and break down the often immoral and promiscuous implications that surround gay sexual culture. Connecting the audience through current modes of communication, M4M is presented as a interactive, understated narrative web platform as well as a printed art zine that references gay periodicals that visualized gay culture through the last quarter century.
