(Extra)ordinary artistic and poetic practices in response to Covid lockdown (2020-2021)

Geraldine Burke, Miriam Potts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This visual essay shows how we moved from making and responding to ‘making-do’ and ‘responding-now’ to creatively engage with Covid times. In the process, our visual essay documents how we employed Covid lockdowns as content, process and event. Together/apart we amplified our living inquiry through making and sharing art and text. Our critical arts-based duo-ethnographies (Farquhar and Fitzpatrick 2016) helped reflect on and diffract our experiences of Covid lockdowns. A nuanced sense of empathy for each other and the Covid times in which we live emerged, along with a freeing-up of our practice-based research methods.
