Covid-19 Bingo

2020


Inspired by the irresistibility of bubble wrap, I joined thousands (if not millions) of other artists making work about the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. This work is interested in participation, visibility, passage of time, preservation of history and the incompetence of our government, and was inspired by the irresistible nature of bubble wrap, the inate competitive urge to win in gameplay and the conflicts of conscious and unconscious participation in works by Félix González-Torres.

Players pop the bubble of a specific event and fill in the date of occurrence on the corresponding sheet. Bingo is called for diagonals and full blackout. But what is the point of winning, when all that’s left is loss. ︎
