2020: BELL CURVES AND VOICE MESSAGES
Marigold beads presents two new designs in response to the Covid-19 pandemic: ‘Bell Curves’ and ‘Voice Messages’.
'Bell Curves’ are based on the many data graphs and charts keeping a tally on the evidence, tracking infection rates, recovery rates, effects of age, co-morbidities and almost every aspect of life. The graphs reflect a collective will to ensure our continuity, and their translation to beadwork records this global moment.
The ‘Voice Messages' are based on the sound wave representations of voice recordings, but they also evoke heart rates, both of which are signs of life and response, antidotes to isolation.
