WEEK 5. I thought that the vector of COVID-19 should be represented. I cast multiple small bats from a Halloween ring. I arranged these 2cm-wingspan bats on the kitchen worksurface as a small installation called Social Distancing 2020. We are advised to stay an adult arm-span apart. The bats were arranged two wingspans apart in an urban grid of geometric vectors, a play on words. Bats are social animals and like to hang out. A sense of humour has become important!
