6 feet Apart is the outcome of a ten week long journey , both personal and professional, through COVID19 and social transformation triggered by it. The challenge was to respond to COVID19 as speculative designers while still figuring it out. Under four themes, environment & ecology, information & news, food and entertainment we came up with solutions and cultural remedies.

Our Design Master Studio for this Spring QT 2020 was entitled Artificial Viroids: Outbreak Narratives and Cultural Vaccines. Our goal was to design potential responses to COVID-19 via critical fictions, new “real time” data and to consider the tender affects/feelings of intimacy during “social distancing”. The class considered classic plague text, read biopolitical theories, watched science fiction films, zombie tales, documentaries, cultural vaccines projects to consider our post-contemporary outbreak narratives. In the hope that we could create cognitive maps and projects based on how societies dealt with pandemics in past, what we could learn from them and what we could do to slow down, route around or stop the pandemic now and the viral futures to come in unexpected ways.
