Cow and Covid19, don't Lose
I started this project when the
pandemic struck, and the governor declared a quarantine
for all New Yorkers. It became very clear that most people
I knew had lost their job, and I wanted to help. I started
a website connecting artists out of work with people stuck
at home... bored and looking for something to do. (cowandcovid19.com/)
I had been looking to introduce
performance in my work for a long time, and I had developped
puppet characters with my boyfriend. I decided to use the
puppets as a way to drive traffic to the website, but the
puppets had other ideas. The
YouTube channel, called Cow and Covid19: don't lose your
sh*t, has now become my creative outlet for this crisis.
I hope humor in dark times can help us cope with the magnitude
of the pandemic.
