As the pandemic spread in early 2020, I began to build a new neighborhood in my Ghost City website Avenue S. Suddenly the world was like a ghost town, the streets were empty, the beaches and parks closed. As we stayed at home or walked alone wearing masks, I wanted to provide an alternative experience. Week by week, I continue to add images, rollovers, poetic texts and animations to the site and have now created hundreds of unique webpages. Avenue S is a journey and a meditation on these disconcerting times—a reflection on isolation, nature, walking, politics and protests. It is meant to be an active yet fragmented viewing experience... just like life today. It is a maze from which to navigate the pandemic and also, just possibly, a path out.
