What has become evident during the current Covid-19 crisis, is that we, as a human race, are undeniably all connected. We are made very aware of a new ‘visceral’ connection–made through invisible ‘respiratory droplets’ that float between us, person-to-person, throughout the entire planet. Touching one person means touching billions. Could the phenomena of collective sickness and collective fear, also bring about collective hope and collective resilience? If bodies can be connected so instantly, could a collective consciousness also be traced? All at once?
Consider the works selected below as a curated ‘image bank’ bringing images, video and sound relating to this meandering rumination about consciousness, collective consciousness, shared psychic trauma and speculative healing.
