The Isolation Museum

Artifacts documenting self isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. This has led many countries to encourage their citizens to stay at home, isolate, or go into quarantine to prevent widespread community transmission.

Being forced to stay home not only changes our relationship to each other, but also changes our relationships to our spaces. The Isolation Museum attempts to capture these changes by encouraging people to reflect on their spaces and to share their stories with each other.

Sharing these stories transforms our isolation into a source of contact and connection with one another.
