Shortly after the first US COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020, I began collecting dryer sheets and coffee grounds used by my family. After individually dying sheets in coffee grounds, I hand stitched them together to create a burial shroud, Through recontextualizing the accumulated byproducts of daily family rituals, I created a kind of visual documentation of time since the pandemic; an abstracted calendar that spreads larger with each passing day. This project is ongoing, and the current shourd has grown by several feet since its last installation.
