Shall I go to the left or shall I go to the right? This is the only decision that I have to make in the last two months depending if I just go for a walk or have to buy something. The map shows my neighborhood and the places I’m visiting during the lockdown.
I’ve mapped where Dante and I go on our almost daily COVID 19 walks. With my iPhone in hand, I’ve documented most of our walks that’s full of botanicals on my personal home life IG @DanteMom. The walks is a chance for Dante and me to bond. I’ve called it daily homeschooled field trips on foot. The orange dotted line walk takes us approximately 30 minutes to walk with only 4500 steps on average. Hope you enjoy our neighborhood walk to the Westlake area in Daly City, California!
I am autistic: I cherish and suffer daily from sensory overloads.
During quarantine I've managed to lose myself in creative works - but I also feel a great deal of claustrophobia resulting in a myriad of irritations!
This is an acrylic-on-paper mood board (mind-map) which I contributed to every time I needed a mental release from daily strains.
I think visually, I had no words to describe my feelings.
In this art-work (a juxtaposition of three paintings) I have described numerous irritations I frequently experience; including solitude, being misunderstood, the sounds of speeding vehicles and strong kitchen scents, what else can you recognise?
Do you empathise with me?
As a mom of a 4 and a 2 year old, I had to get creative to help my kids overcome the fact they had to stay home in a small apartment and not see their friends. So we tried to have as much fun as possible.
During quarantine I spent 35 hours, over a period of a week, creating a junk journal using the ephemera from my 50th birthday trip to Paris. (This was 11 ½ years ago!) The trip solidified our love affair, and we married a year later. We kvelled as we reminisced about our two weeks of bliss.
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.
This map is a personal project reflecting on how my world has become reduced to these little boxes of space, but this map acts as a reminder to what we can do to try to stay calm and find moments of peace during lockdown life.
