The Fashioning Circuits lab team is still meeting virtually during our plague semester. We have decided to engage in one word weekly prompts inspired by Cecilia Vicuña’s Journal of Objects. Participants quick create an object from materials they source from their homes. Given the glitchy distancing, we are all experiencing some members of the group heard “communicate” some members heard “create” for the prompt.

This week we decided to step away from the webcams and microphones for ten minutes to form some version of visual output, the images posted here are the results from week 1.

A digital collage made from the flyers left on my door since the university closed down.

For some extra context, the food flyer appears to be from a Blue Apron style meal kit service. The smaller one is a form that has been circulating online promoting that people to set up a community point of contact. I've blacked out the personal information left on this one.
