Pandemic inspired work
Stop motion animation / digital collage about pulmonary mist and exercise in these Covid19 times.
This feels to me like visual history keeping. I'm trying to capture the disbelief and cognitive dissonance of this moment; the way everything feels very slow and very fast at the same time. The little visual indicators that something is deeply wrong, even as we try to live. Cherry blossoms and police tape around playgrounds. Baking bread and writing last minute letters to the past. I feel so ridiculously fortunate to be housed and employed and sharing my home with people I love. I feel so undone by grief and fear and uncertainty. All of the above.
Pandemic emotional sound collage
In my Working With Audio class, I asked students to submit a found sound every week, a sound that captured their emotional state that week. At the end of the quarter, I edited those sounds into a Pandemic Emotional Sound Collage.
