The doctoral project, Sounding Expanded Affinities, focuses on feminist approaches to time, subjectivity, and community in a project concerned with the individual and gender, affinities and friendship, and love and belonging. The project examines a history of critiques of marriage, considers the egalitarian potential of non-monogamous forms and proposes expanded affinities as having the social and political potential to contribute to a disruption and reorganization of the patriarchal holdovers in a US context. The ideas are organized with a synchronous sense of time in the space of installation—a form which intervenes, counters, and reworks the linear, heteronormative narratives of constraint, omission, and dominance that institutions like marriage still retain.
