For my creative endeavor symposium, I would like to focus on the topic of being an “only child.” I am a senior in IPFW’s Visual Communication and Design program, and I am currently in the process of starting my senior thesis on the same topic. Through national and regional research, I would like to be able to show statistics about being an only child, the positives and negatives, and also to be able to showcase this through photography. My photographic exploration of the experience of being an only child will start with me. I am an only child myself, and this will be the main aspect motivating my work. I will be creating an online survey to ask peoples thoughts and opinions on what it was like to be an only child, or is like. I will then use my photographic images to showcase these findings. For this specific project I will interview six subjects, and include personal quotes in my visual design aspect of this project.
