Pandemic Products

During the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent quarantine, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about/staring at/shopping for/agonizing over the things I need to buy. Whether shopping online and refreshing for hours to find a delivery slot or donning a mask and gloves to brave the store, the products we choose to buy feel like they have so much more weight in these times. In reaction to these feelings, I created a series that finds humor and relatability in the products and experiences of “our new normal.”
