VIDEO AND DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY, 2020
In collaboration with Pam Patterson and Daniel Payne, the artists have undertaken an exploration of our daily life subsumed as many have with the pandemic, COVID-19 in 2020-2021. Artworks are about COVID-19 anxiety: Investigating social and political implications of “location”, ”refuge”, and “loss” in the Anthropocene. The artists began developing collaborative and solo artwork about their lives from the start of the pandemic to be exhibited online. They gratefully acknowledge the support from the following:
