When all this began, just for a moment (during that “peak fear” time) there was that unique feeling peculiar to Covid. Something that went on for a day or so perhaps. A short, sharp, shock realisation of life’s brief window vs. mortality. Right then I had an intense sense of being glad; lucky to be alive, precious and perfectly well whilst trapped within an unknown. An ever-present, ominous and invisible danger. Both a positive and a negative at once. A kind of light and dark, a bright organism in a dark space.
This is the first of several projects I’ve been producing that attempt to visualise, explore and express Covid’s emotional phases, to pin them down before they disappear.
