Essential Workers: Campesinos & #LaborEsencial

Essential Workers: Campesinos & #LaborEsencial

By Gabriel Medina

I was invited to join a caravan of artist, activists, and leaders from Watsonville, CA who wanted to thank and show our appreciation for our farm workers.”

“It’s an attempt to reconcile with the experiences of the last 6 months. To consider the impact of western society’s culture of separation and avoidance of mortality. My experience of the pandemic has led me to understand nature as a constant reminder of ephemerality and to acknowledge the profoundly beautiful side of impermanence.”

How Do You Spend Your Time in Quarantine?

By Marilia Kaisar

"This video essay traces my own personal routine of walking through different landscapes of Santa Cruz and reflects on being in between languages and continents. It is an attempt to portray the experience of being quarantined across borders in an unfamiliar country with a foreign language and culture. To disconnect from the screen and reconnect with nature and myself.”

The Fridge

By Gioh Sung

"Passing of time can mean very different during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Days and nights just blend into one another during these confusing times. Lately, the only way to keep track of time is checking my fridge, sometimes cold, sometimes hopeful.”
