Pandemic Spring

Pandemic Spring is a visual diary of the Coronavirus pandemic, inspired by the contrast between the grim record of coronavirus cases and deaths and the beautiful, life-affirming signs of spring everywhere in nature.

Each work consists of a watercolour & pencil drawing (and a few collages)  on top of an A4 printout of graphs showing total confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths in 8 countries on the day of the drawing. 

The source of the graphs is coronavirusgraphs.com, which uses data from John Hopkins CSSE

Originally part of 12o Collective's 30Works30Days challenge, Alke is now continuing this diary on an occasional basis as Pandemic Spring turns into Pandemic Summer.
