Uncharted is an exhibition based on overcoming loneliness created for the SCAD Museum of Art. The project was completed for Graphic Design Studio 1, which focuses on developing unique visual solutions across multiple media. Before designing the materials and environment for the exhibition the story was first created in order to ensure visual and thematic success. Although the actual exhibition itself was not created, themed walls and displays, narrative literature and interactive screens give the viewer a deep understanding of the exhibition and its intent.
The loneliness epidemic is a multi-faceted issue that affects a wide spectrum of people...
Loneliness is a feeling that must be assessed regularly as it has the potential to cause a painful experience for the sufferer. Studies show that solitude does not necessarily equal loneliness, as one can be physically alone but not feel lonely. Often loneliness makes individuals feel ashamed and fearful of establishing close connections with other people. If this act of not reaching out continues, legitimate feelings of isolation and depression ensue, negatively shaping one’s outlook on life and causing the present to feel bleak. While the topic of loneliness has been studied for some time, the experience of each individual is unique and largely uncharted, calling for careful examination in each scenario.
