    Thesis Abstract

    What if social media went beyond the “networked individual” broadcast and focused instead on the individual threads of connections?

    An early obsession with AOL Instant Messenger, a fascination with sharing feelings, and many long-distance relationships (platonic and otherwise) shaped me into a designer driven by the celebration of people and communication. Through my thesis, I focus on intervening in surface-level (and sometimes narcissistic) social media to create digital solutions for more engaging and meaningful interactions between those that truly care about each other.

    In three parts, I tackle building intangible communities in the 21st century. My work focuses on closing the distance between loved ones by finding opportunities in existing behaviors, the formation and curation of collective memory as a means to connect and reconnect, and a speculative exploration of personal identity as influenced by others in two mirrored realities.
