Sweet Talk

Sweet Talk seeks to bridge the gap between traditional, slow build relationships and the hyper-active dating and hook up culture that is facilitated through social media applications. Both forms of dating have always felt inaccessible, and somewhat empty to me. In Sweet Talk, I seek to explore the middle ground, and to mediate that terrain through gifting. By marrying the velocity of tinder with the intimacy of long term romantic commitments, I wish to find a way to build an experience, or a rapid relationship that holds meaning- one that exists between the slow build, and the swipe.
