In a touching and cheeky collection, various artists comment on the isolation, the camaraderie and the absurdity of these tumultuous times. A comic explores the unexpected connections to neighbours and reconnections to forgotten friends we seek during isolation. A “visualization exercise” recommends envisioning ourselves in a Utopian society, an ignorant mind or the belly of a whale. Whether it be a new emoji mask product design or the fundamental need for physical touch, these stories bring in diverse and unique perspectives that resonate with our collective experience.
