FUTURE LOVERS: Some Assembly Required – Thesis Design

** Awarded BEST IN SHOW — FIT Graphic Design Senior Exhibition ** 
We now live in an age of rapid techo-consumption and mass communication, where the chief product that is currently available is our self. Or, at least, some digitally produced fantasy of ourselves. We are a never-ending supply of pleasure that adapts as needed, on demand. If we don’t adapt or prove to be superficially interesting enough, we can be turned off or un-followed with a simple click. Forgotten. This alienation from one another that we are experiencing due to technologies that are so culturally pervasive, is a sort of conditioning, transforming our behaviors to be more machine-like and in doing so bring about the inevitability of human-robot relations. Yet this is nothing new, not strictly a 21st-century affliction, but a growing result of the relationship between economic systems and technology and how their partnership advances our inevitable march towards robo-love.
