This work was produced during the pandemic while isolating at home. The video follows a boy's response to COVID-19. The boy participates in his community's "isolate, test, treat and trace" initiative, marked by red crosses on their homes. This work reflects on COVID-19, our relationship with the environment and sustainability. The video features minor digital image manipulation where red crosses were added to trees and homes. Produced in Denmark and Canada, 2021.
