Eye C. you / by Sarah Taibah

The C theory:

This theory romanticizes the progression of a relationship. The theory contains 30 words that start with the letter C. These words describe the ideal flow of a relationship between two people. From the beginning: coincidence or chance… to the middle: change and communication... to the peek: comfort, certainty and compassion. 

The Poem:

The poem is a more fluid romantic approach than the theory. This piece introduces the element of contradiction. It sounds like it’s dedicated to one person while in fact it is a collection of experiences. Encountering all the C’s in one relationship is nearly impossible. Therefore monogamy is an imperfect concept that this piece aims to challenge. 


Graph A: 

This graph is an outline of distance and location distributed on the world map. The individuals presented on the map have, in one-way or another, contributed various elements of the C theory in my life. The connections illustrated remind me of how humans are similar in their pursuit to belong and connect.

Graph B: 

A numerical count of each C per individual measured on a scale of 0 to 10.

Graph C:

This subject overlap graph is a visual mess that shows the common C factors based on group analysis. The colors are quite similar and this reflects the confusion of real life.
