Abstract

My thesis, “Only We Can Pull,” is a creative response to the current state of our society and the slow, pronounced dovetail of our environment, with an emphasis on the West’s, especially California’s, 15-yearlong drought and increasing temperatures. I believe it is important for the humanities, arts, and sciences to work together to raise the awareness of people in any method available. In my creative presentation, I will be focusing on the smallest unit, that of personal relationships, by attempting to weave together the many solitary “I’s” we come into contact with on a daily basis in order to create a “we” that understands the power of community. This is to showcase a “we,” a community, a people, a world, we seem to no longer be in tune with and are continually at odds with. Thus, the transformation of the speaker occurs within my creative pieces in an attempt to bring a metaphorical awareness to the importance of coming together and taking responsibility for the condition of our world. So, ultimately, we can make the fruitful changes our society needs.
