Of artifacts, pendemics and ponderings

The Global Quarantine Museum is my latest project under development. Conceptually, the idea is to create a virtual exhibit space for representations in all media and in writings (aka pendemics) about the individual and collective experiences of life during the COVID-19 pandemic.

How has life changed for you? What has gained importance? And what have you discovered is not so important after all?

How are you spending your time? Are you separated from your loved ones? Finding your quarters too close? Homeschooling your children for the first time?

Are you wondering about life after? Pondering a post-quarantine world?Speculating about what some are referring to as the “new normal”?

The Global Quarantine Museum seeks to respond to these questions and more. I invite your virtual submissions of poems, photographs, drawings, journal entries, paintings, polemics, sculptures, videos, art and artifacts.

I look forward to your feedback, comments, and submissions. As I said earlier, the museum is under development, and we are still working out the kinks in the submission system. In the meantime, send messages via the museum’s “Contact” tab or directly by email to erferrara@gmail.com.
