Tell us about the work. Why did you choose this event? How did you create the work? What outcome and impact would you like the visual community to support with sharing your work?
I am passionate about data privacy. In the begging of the Covid-19 outbreak many privacy professionals warned about the dangers of creating surveillance states through Tech.
This event is a panel debate between an engineer in the BlueTooth research field, that advises the Danish government, the human rights lawyer and a politician on whether a Covid-19 tracking App is a functional solution or a way to infringe on human rights and liberties.
Event Home Isolation
Tell us about the work...
When social distancing and isolation started, I had high hopes for my self.
I was going to read a tons of books, start or finish a loads of creative projects, and do something absolutely amazing with my government-sanctioned holidays.
Alas! The human nature is so predictive. The honest count so far is:
It turns out, stressful times are not the best for creativity. In stead, it is a normal physical reaction to shut down all non-essential activities and preserve energy to cope with the unknown.
Fortunately, I have my visual thinking to help me find meaning in the new normal. Hope you have something too, that helps you process the unknown reality.
Tell us about the work..
Last night i woke up from a nightmare. I dreamt that my upper neighbour was a fully grown circus elephant in intensive gymnastics training. I dreamt that my left-side neighbour was a hormonal teenage parrot - and a right-side neighbour an eternaly renovating handyman woodpecker. I dreamt that a group of party monkeys lived downstairs. But when i woke up this morning, I realised that those noises are just my very human neighbours. Social isolation in a densely populated apartment buildings of cities has given us ample opportunities too closely get to know each other's habits and quirks. At the time it does feel like living in a Zoo. And even though it can be hard to manage isolation, hearing very human sounds of our neighbours can also be comforting in a way. Because we all in this together. At a distance! ? especially when neighbours show kindness and care for each other. ➡️ Disclaimer: I actually have very nice neighbours in my building. In this sketch I have illustrated the accumulated experiences of my friends and me. Because, you know... neighbours - you can't live with them, and you can't live without them
