About the project

In times like these, it is undoubtedly important to stay engaged in the political and social narrative around us. Considering the rise of nationalism, Brexit and now Covid-19, I wanted to make sure that I have artwork as evidence of these times. Having moved on from the chaos of Brexit to Covid-19, I have noticed how quickly my concerns from December 2019 have made way for this massive catastrophe.

To the right is the Covid-Pot which raises the question: once we are all ancient history, what will they say about this time?
