2020: The Confluence


"I enjoyed getting to know the farms around gunpowder (Gunpowder Falls State Park, Maryland)Since it was the only thing I could explore I meet really nice places and enjoy all the food and products from them."

"One thing that happened during 2020 is that I got a lot closer to my Mom, something that did not happen before."

"Yeah. I liked that I had time to read, and for once I felt like things were leaving my shelves not just being piled onto them. And yeah, I’m still super rusty writing and I haven’t tried any short stories or long ones even but the poetry itself have really helped me open up personal doors I didn’t realize I had shut I guess

This Virtual Exhibition is for everyone. It is an all inclusive, viewer completed virtual installation. A collection of unique stories from our experiences in 2020. Although any types of stories are welcome, we are specifically looking for stories that exemplify how 2020 brought out the best in people, places, events, etc. How has 2020 changed you for the better? This reflection, this collection and this concentration is what we seek in our viewers. Dig deep and help us create and grow this installation.

Below is a google form that will allow viewers to participate in this unique experience collection. These can be personal in nature or links to pages that tell stories of hope, connection, communication, unification and change. Once submitted, Alex and Nick will sift through these anonymous responses. Through this process of collection, classification, and concatenation, Alex and Nick hope to show the positive outlook, resilience and adaptability of the human condition.
