Re:habilitation

It is without a doubt that we wake up to something new and shocking every day in 2020. Our project deals with the current pandemic that is taking the world by storm: the COVID-19 coronavirus. Through visual representation, we are hoping to inform our viewers about how individuals in China dealt with the virus. The virus opens up issues about domesticity in isolation, how does one deal with the virus? Or how does one deal with the virus if their loved ones are infected? How does one deal with the spaces of quarantine? The spatial element of this crisis is our primary interest and focus, our project takes place in China during the first month of the virus outbreak. Starting with 4 domestic typologies, our project begins by analyzing a millennial individual’s home, typically a studio or 1 bedroom apartment. Secondly, a couple's dwelling, age variant. A single-family dwelling, and lastly, a two-generation family dwelling. /*Collaborate with Birdia Zuo, Ivan Zhang*/

The Challenge

Our project records the necessary measurements of each scenario needed for the proper accuracy of a quarantine zone and the potential spaces needed for when an individual is recovering/ recovered from the virus. Our drawings graphically record the activities and equipment needed during this chaotic time, we hope through our graphic visualization on pandemic spatial expansion, casualties, policies of China and the U.S., stock market drops, and actions of community control in China, we hope to tell the story by unpacking the global process of the pandemic breakout. The actors in our story could potentially involve everyone judging by the current state of things. The project's topic also deals with the socio-economic and political problems of China and the world at large. The one month pause on returning to work has dealt a huge blow to the global economy and will continue to do so, our project hopes to at least conjure some ideas on the proper process of getting back to work with the diagrams we create.
