Party in the Pandemic by Elizabeth Wright

Party in the Pandemic

Within this project, I wanted to explore the
parallels between the 1920’s Spanish flu pandemic, and the Covid19 pandemic of
2020. I wanted to center the visual elements of my work around sequins, disco
balls and all things metallic as a metaphor for finding light among dark times,
just as they did 100 years ago in the 1920’s in the face of adversity when the
flapper girl was born surrounded by decadence and extravagance. I wanted to
explore the fact that the 1920’s are remembered for parties and beauty, rather
than the deadly pandemic which took over 6 million lives, and transfer the
sense of glamour and celebration of 100 years ago into the current events
happening in today's society - finding light (and glitter)  in dark times.
