Survivance Through Non-Productive Relationships

Desire is threatened by the felt necessity to view all encounters for their inherent gains, making it difficult to distinguish between deceitful desires and desires that belong to our authentic selves. The lifelessness which exists from these false constructions inhibits any attempts of thriving. We began our journey exploring the objects and artifacts of our own desires and relationships. Questioning the authenticity of the real, hyper-real, and fake. Asking ourselves to unapologetically practice desires with no economic, social, or political capital to be gained. Through the course of the project, we explored these ideas through our own case studies, diorama imagery, interactive games, and the final conceptualization of a performance.
