How to Get a Diamond
Thesis work, website, front-end development, research
What began as a lighthearted list of ways to obtain a diamond for free turned into a near-obsessive search, tracked through a cryptic blog. The personality behind the site, Dee Diamonds, documents all her attempts to obtain a diamond on her own terms, whether through formal requests to diamond distributors or time spent probing divorce forums and diamond mine locations. Through layers of pop-up windows, readers follow her quest, simultaneously tracking the tension between societal expectations and personal desire.
