Screen Print with color-changing dye on cotton
With the pandemic spreading, I found myself one of the few remaining who had not contracted the virus at some point. However, I still felt that the virus was infecting me. With the pandemic so wide-reaching and affecting every aspect of our daily lives, it was impossible for me not to feel as if it had embedded itself in my body despite my negative results. Wearing a mask every day exasperated this feeling. This silkscreen piece illustrates these feelings through the same fabric we use as a barrier against Covid.
