Lying Fallow: A Covid Response Artwork

We asked two friends of ours, who had never met, to share their feelings after the first six months of Covid lockdown. Racial bias and the environment figured prominently, but so did small, personal moments where they reflected on their ties to family and community.

The dialogue was generated by Michelle Gay and Libby Shea. Their words were re-interpreted by Grace Bridgman, Michael Copeman, Matthew Dolgin, Marisol Stoltzfus Forand, Philly Markowitz and Heather Saumer.

This project was supported by the Canada Council Digital Originals program.

Love to all.
