C19 Text Talk
2020

'C19 Text Talk' is a hand embroidered diary, comprised of 50 text works, made over a period of 100 days since the enforcement of the UK lockdown on the 23rd March 2020.

 

Each work was made in direct response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, a combination of government guidelines, media quotations and my personal responses to the situation, which were shared with the public through Instagram. 

The aim of the work was to raise awareness, encourage people to question their actions and to make informed decisions. For myself, the act of embroidering these messages allowed me to process the information in a time of crisis.

Materials - Calico, cotton

Unframed Dimensions - 50 text works, 8 x 16 cm each
