Love Mapping

This is a conceptual project done through exercises to reflect my reading of “All About Love” by bell hooks. Using this plot map meant to generate self analysis (not critique), participants are asked to plot depth of feelings in different relationships: platonic, romantic, familial, spiritual, self, with bell hook’s definition of love: care, affection, responsibility, respect, commitment and trust. These maps are then abstracted into collages.
