Issue 60 | SS 2022 Part One

With extraordinary speed, the Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed how we view the world and interact with others; most significantly, crowds and gatherings are no longer welcoming but signify danger. Our first story, Awkward looks at how social distancing and self-isolation will inform our collective consciousness in the future.

Stark, empty streets around the world have been one of the most visually arresting images of the Covid-19 pandemic; a previously unimaginable reality where people no longer exist. Our second story, Wasteland looks at the power of nature to challenge our complacency and asks if there is an opportunity to learn from our mistakes.

While Awkward projects fatalism and a yearning for control, paradoxically, Wasteland reflects a more optimistic outcome post Covid-19.
