People in houses this Spring 2020 during the Covid-19 Pandemic are isolated but not alone. Inside communication thrives through letters, phones, art and the internet. The street and entryways join like a galaxy connecting the inhabitants
from all points of the earth. The sidewalk hums a persistent tune and Spring bursts forth with powerful beauty.
A distinct feather on each door designates the cultural identity of the people within. The entryways and street boundary lines mark off the State where each resident has come from. The sidewalk is a tangle of confused equations. The messages in the clouds are the pervasive media, our tenuous connection to the world. As the year of the Pandemic progressed the tension of the presidential election and mask or no mask became a focus in the community at large. There was an uneasy atmosphere of separation and alienation from neighbors as if we were fiercely in this tribe or another or from red state or blue.
