Viral Texts

Viral texts is my way to respond and deal with the impact of the virus and lockdown.I have located it in my front garden because as an artist I need to share and question.I feel we are all going through an enormous range of emotions and reactions through this extended time of reflection so I wanted to articulate in a very direct way the different concerns, ideas’s and observations I am experiencing in this extraordinary period of time.Each board of text is carefully considered and placed in a particular chosen place in relation to the others.When I finish there will be 12 boards fighting to be heard.

The film giving voice was a 1 min video made in one day as a response to that particular day in terms of the weather and the news and the boards I had made.
