We Are All in the Same Situation

A community-created artwork taking place in The Hidden Gardens, Glasgow from November 2020 - February 2021.

Driven by a desire to affirm connection in the wake of social distancing, the project created the opportunity for people to come together in physical space, safely seperated by time but inhabiting the same space.

Togetherness in this space was initially achieved digitally, through a dedicated Instagram account, where individual contributions were collected (left).

After three months, participant contributions were made into an immersive installation, situated on the original site (installation top).  
Collages were created from images/text uploaded by participants and printed on sheer silk panels, allowing the records of the site to mingle with the environment. 

Collaborative drawing created over Zoom.
