Mapping This Moment: My Life as an Essential Worker by Lisa Wee

Singapore , Singapore , SG


My map to my life as an essential worker. For most, stay home was a mandatory choice. For me, it was not because I worked with Seniors in nursing home. Nursing home seniors had been on lockdown with no outing and volunteers activities since February 2020. One month without relatives’ visitation. I used art as a diversionary therapy to lessen their sense of isolation and limited movement. I am mapping the journey from my home with all the needed steps of daily temperature taking, mask up, hand washing with a bottle of hand sanitizer before getting out of my safe home into social distancing in train station.
