This book was part of my fourth year thesis course at OCAD University.
Couples in long-distance tend to have different ways of connecting with each-other than couples that are closer in geographical distance. The intention was to investigate long-distance romantic relationships through research using journals, reports and interviews. Different deliverables were created to represent the stories behind long-distance romantic relationships (LDRR).
This book is an infographic that represents the responses gathered from a questionnaire. The questionnaire was completed by people who had or have been experiencing LDRR. The accordion style of the book depicts distance through the length and continuation of its' pages.
- Data Organization
Long-distance romantic relationships can be wishful and romantic yet dark and depressing. When thinking of LDRR, I personally connected it to the Victorian era (exposed by the media as an era where many love stories and letter writing took place.) Hence old images were chosen to represent the found data. The different shades of red and black depict the romantic and darker sides of long-distance romantic relationship.
