Framed by Zoom, a repurposed business communications platform, we connect across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, airing anxieties and revelations from our transformed lives. We contextualize our individual realities and shared observations with references both historical and uniquely of this moment. Post-War manipulation of gendered labor, economic collapse, our artistic practices, and field recordings of New York's current ambulance laden soundscape give shape to our current headspace.
