During August Pandemic Views was a Special Project of AREA CODE Art Fair. Participants cross-stitched their views from various locations. Some of the in-progress needlework is featured below as well as in a zine.
The project was led by research into 19th and early 20th century craft practices during quarantine against Tuberculosis, before there was an effective medication for this infectious and airborne disease. See this video for more information on the project concept.
Pandemic Views will remain open to participants during the COVID19 pandemic, and we will publish documentation of the needlework as it comes in.
