Inside I have lace & glitter & teeth & moulds & rhinestones & silk & digital cameras & fabric masks & old phones & googly eyes & wire & bits of old clothes & pencil crayons & watercolour & glass beads & a cat & chains & a glue gun & 8 inch heels & a wedding magazine & nothing but time.

I took a series of images this morning of my desk and the things that I have in my apartment to make art from. I hope that these images will inspire the work that I do later this week and some of my supplies will make another appearance.


Today I thought about masks and misinformation. History repeats itself; hysteria, superstition and medical equipment are partners in pandemic. Whether it's corona or the plague, what we choose to wear on our faces for protection cannot guarantee safety, but does it ensure fashion?


If only the things surrounding our homes right now were soft and well-intentioned rather than bleak and terrifying.


My personal tools of distraction were considered with today's prompt. I considered my current lifestyle and my reliance on devices. My relationships are fulfilled online, my emotions shared, and I am perceived as a digital entity. I am living in a purgatory with technology in the midst of COVID-19 . Today I played with the tension between my body and addiction to technology.
