This version 2 is a spoof on the original #coronavirus animated collage. The source material is a vintage movie poster from an early Jack Nicholson film called “Back Door to Hell”. I found the poster at an antique store in Los Angeles, and once all the pieces were cut apart, this new formation took place, with the words “call her” jumping out while in a subconscious flow of creation.

All of the pieces in the “Banned Hashtags” series are a reflection of the events, politics and conspiracy theories of 2020. This piece serves as a record of these things that happened in our recent history.

This piece emerged as a reflection of the use of the hashtag #chinavirus, coined by former President Donald Trump to place blame on China for the Coronavirus after rumors that is was originated in Wuhan.

The title of this work also tells the story of the violent Asian hate movement that was spurred in the US after President Trump’s accusations, leading to protests, parades and social media campaigns of Americans standing up against Asian hate crimes. These occurrences had me wanting to call and check on my Asian friends in America and to hear their story, which tied in with the message “call her”.

I created this piece by first making an analogue 3D collage and photographing it. I then layered the digital image in Photoshop and my animation team made the piece come to life. Reda Briki worked with the piece to make a custom soundscape that I compiled in Premiere, adding additional layers.

This piece in no way is meant to convey a personal belief in China being at fault for the Coronavirus. The messaging in this work and the series does not support discrimination hate crimes of any type.
