In the initial weeks of the pandemic we are currently going through Americans were inundated with facts, charts and statistics and we tried to find a way to quantify the severity of the situation. What this project attempts to do is effectively give a first-hand account of several stories from around the world on how Covid-19 has affected the individual.
On request, the individual communicates their thoughts by creating a voice memo on their phone while in their most comfortable environment – usually alone. They are of course free to answer the question of how Covid-19 affects them, in whatever manner they wish. It’s an interview with themselves, or a “stream of consciousness” as one person characterized it. My hope is that it conveys the intimacy of how individuals are coping – socially, economically and psychologically – with the current state of our world.
