Constance Button: Normal Love
Normal Love is a photography exhibition that contemplates the relationship between humans, attraction, and the internet. The project uses found imagery and text sourced from various sections of Craigslist forums to re-contextualize the both mundane and deeply personal information that people are willing to share with others in an anonymous online space. In looking at the varied and vulnerable ways in which people disclose themselves online, Normal Love seeks to share with people that there is nothing normal about the way people choose to engage emotionally with others. Humans engage with attraction, love, remorse, anger, and hesitation in countless ways and in varying degrees of intensity and strangeness. This show serves as a glimpse into that spectrum of emotional response.
