PIÈCE DE DISTANCE

‘Behind the Pandemic’ (2020) 

Film still

These are stills from a film about the various consequences of COVID-19, especially those overlooked by the transmission of the virus itself. This performance piece was created mimicking the action of wearing a mask and using the creases to reveal text and images that were once hidden.

‘Take a walk, they said’ (2021)

Film still

This short film highlights the new set of anxieties that have arisen due to the now normalcy of social distancing. By filming a walk from my home to the grocery store I covered a portion of the lens with a disposable mask to give a first-person perspective.
