Apart Together: Quarantine Collab
8 hearts. 7 Countries. 1 Song. Project #apartTogetherCollab was created by 8 artists, strangers seeking creative and emotional connection during unprecedented isolation. Our story reveals that bonds built virtually can be significant and sustaining, encouraging stability and inspiration.
For the next seven days we will release new video collaborations, and we invite you to enjoy our diverse geographic artistry that shares a united vision of hope. Please share our work as we continue to express that closeness is not always about proximity, and that we can be together even when we are apart.
My artist statement:
When Joel reached out to me for an online art collaboration, I was intrigued with this opportunity from the beginning and I didn't hesitate to join the collaboration. It's a beautiful and creative way to connect with other artists (all over the world), even though we are all "stuck" at home for the time being. If it weren't for this global pandemic, it might have never happened. I see so many artists become even more creative and thinking outside of the box during this time and that is the positive thing I will take away from this pandemic situation. Creative thinking will always be the solution.
