What Should I Document?
What should I document?
How has the virus changed how you live at the moment? Describe and record your everyday life experiences-- no matter how uneventful, ordinary or routine. What are your experiences working from home—as a student, parent, caregiver? What was your reaction to the closing of campus? How has the virus changed or influenced your future plans?
How we are reconsidering questions of our individual and collective mortality?
What is the "story" we are in?
Where do we go from here?
Record these experiences in a journal, or create short poems, haiku, short stories, essays, etc. Create drawings, comics, illustrations, photographs, self-portraits, scrapbooking, and portraits of your co-inhabitants...
