The Tragic Tension (...)
Final Degree Project

Two-piece tapestry and editorial publication that approach the sexual-affective exclusivity agreement within monogamous relationships.

The narrative of the project is built upon the third person that interacts with a one-to-one relationship. The tapestries illustrate the tension between the complexity of desire and the simplicity of social norms. The third person can’t be seen at first sight but is inherently present in the gap between both tapestries. In the end, she appears in the foredge of the book that contains related theoretical information.

The ultimate goal of the project is to share a mind-shifting message and encourage people who feel burdened to explore other ways to sex-affectively relate to other individuals. Likewise, it aims to expose the role of design in everyday people’s lives by translating in a more understandable way a matter that is related to another field of knowledge.
