About the book:
At the beginning of 2020, I was looking for a subject to provoke daily creativity, and turned to the headlines of the BBC News App for inspiration. Every day for a year I committed to publishing on Instagram my creative response to the top headline that appeared when I opened the app. This book presents the art project as it unfolded, along with the unforgettable events that led to the tumultuous spread of the Coronavirus pandemic. The publication chronicles the disaster as it happened, through daily photographs, videos, paintings, drawings, sketches and illustrations. Each image is accompanied by text that details the date and BBC headline, alongside hashtags that described the events of each day. A foreword is written by Camilla Brown, curator, writer and educator on contemporary art, previously Senior Curator at The Photographer’s Gallery and Exhibitions Curator at Tate Liverpool.
