Diagram of a Silent Garden is an open call for a group show, using the title for a prompt and general invitation. Intended to reflect a range of practice in flux during Covid-19, we hoped to create a space to reconsider making work in our new condition. As our participant pool expanded the project naturally shifted from print to online form. We are proud to publish these pieces and thankful to those who took the time to let this site become a wide index of their practices. In the spirit of this ongoing conversation, we will continue to be open to new submissions.
Core Team: Brian Sing, Jared Fellows; 3D Identity with Ted Youjong Kim; Design by Brian Sing & Jake Brussel Faria; Developed by Jake Brussel Faria. Submit to DSG II here.
Stare at the Ceiling
I returned home to my parent’s house (and in-network healthcare) in early March (2020). My driver’s license expired, and the DMV closed, so I essentially remained in the same 10-block radius for the next six weeks. Painting became a way to more intimately know the space I was confined to and to think outside its perimeters, towards the future and the past.
