Going Viral represents the stress that surrounds navigating the world as a parent in the post Covid-19 outbreak. It is meant to represent the fear that every trip outside beyond the home could be the one where you pick something up from an asymptomatic stranger who touches your cart in the grocery store as they squeeze by you in the aisle. Every trip induces that heart-pounding stress behind the casual contact that makes us now fear each other and long for connection.
