Lauren Atkins presented her case as research into the human psyche and young girls' obsession with movie characters.

“Because of personal attachment to and experience with this fantasy or quest, which took a particularly strong hold of me when I discovered the intensely popular Twilight Saga, my thesis exhibition will touch on romantic expectation primarily through the main love interest, Edward Cullen,” she writes, according to Jezebel.

They say a photograph is worth a thousand words, and this one makes it obvious that Lauren committed to a cardboard cutout of Pattinson. It's not even a good cutout, as you can see the rough, white edges, and Robert doesn't look happy to be there at all.

Of course, Lauren is aware that her version is not the real thing. Nonetheless, she is set to hold a ceremony, which she dubs an art installation. She was able to raise $1,235 (€943) for her cause, which should buy her a lot of tickets to see the movie.
