Title:
Lot Covid 19

Author:
GABRIELA DELCIN PIRES

Description:
The work lot COVID 19 was developed in May 2020, the function of this art went beyond a personal expression, but an attempt to make people aware of the severity of the virus. The proposal was to try to humanize the victims that had been turning into numbers, for that I used the knowledge of my research on human factors and design, so I set out to bring up questions with which people in Brazil would identify themselves on the labels and also bringing the faces a way to humanize the victims. In addition, as it is a work with an awareness function, I prioritized that it be disseminated and reach the largest number of people, above having my name related, so I made it available for anyone to download, and the result was that it went viral on facebook, instagram and whatsapp (In several places without mentioning my name, however the work fulfilled its function). * The photos were taken with people of my family with whom I spend the period of isolation and also self portrait ** If necessary I can translate and explain each label in detail More photos and formats of the work https://www.elas.me/brazilcovid Concept text Art is the way I found to deal with what goes beyond the self, during the COVID-19 crisis this essay emerged, as a criticism and also a way of trying to show through art the seriousness of the problem to people. The death of humanity scares me, not only because of the death of life, because death is a consequence of life and with that we know how to deal, I speak of the death of humanity, what makes us feel and act in community, the humanity that turns into humans. When life is treated as a commodity, names become numbers, motives are lost, life becomes data, it becomes statistics. Life without humanity loses its meaning. And then, what scares me, people without humanity, become self-centered, who seek their pleasures above the common good, who ignore facts and science for the illusion of reason, do not care about others, who do not care about life , who don't care about anything that doesn't satisfy them, a sociopathic humanity where life turns into data, and data comes to life. I believe that art has a power to communicate with people, it is a language to be explored.
