Love in Time of Epidemic
Three Domus Academy students, one powerful project created during the Design of Spaces workshop.
Design of Spaces Workshop
The coronavirus is spreading globally. The world is in quarantine and isolation becomes a necessity. This might lead to the worst kind of epidemic – the loneliness epidemic. The reduction of human connection has enormous impacts on physical and mental health. The project is asking: how to survive it the world without skin to skin contact? Students believe that we should urgently start searching for the antidote to the touch crisis just as scientists are developing vaccines. They have designed a series of objects that hopefully contribute to the discussion about isolation from loved ones.
