For my graduate thesis, I explored how principals of surrealism can be used in GIF format to provoke conversation around gender identity and expression.
Historically in surrealism, the female muse played this role of provocateur. However, as we evolve as a society, what it even means to be female is a loaded question. This project promotes equality of all genders and gender expressions primarily through GIFS shared on tumblr and instagram. The aesthetic was inspired by gender fluidity, various pride flags and internet culture.
