I am using my stay-at-home time to work on my Kudzu: Alien Invasion project.
I have been thinking about this project very differently since COVID-19 began to blanket the world. Kudzu has become, for me, a metaphor for an invasion of an alien, unknown pathogen.
Something alien is among us. Something insidious and deadly. It literally smothers us.
Scientists are working to understand it in order to find its weaknesses and attack it. Medical professionals are using every weapon at their disposal to cut it down.
We are refusing to give it a place to take hold, we are denying it a place to live, we are staying home.
