Postcards from the Apocalypse

  1. 1. POSTCARDS FROMTHE APOCALYPSE
  2. 2. Quotes are a selection from 700+ participants from 54 countries. A time capsule. The third week of March 2020.
  3. 3. “Can you share something about this situation that you feel deep inside that you have not voiced aloud with others?”
  4. 4. DIRECT CONSEQUENCE “I’m ashamed. I don’t think my business will survive.” “I worry about losing loved ones.”“I am nervous.” “I'm afraid of losing my job of the crisis manifests itself into an economic meltdown.” “I’m really worried about my finances.” "I feel confused by such a situation, I am not aware of the magnitude of the problem globally nor what it will mean for my country”
  5. 5. THE BRUTALTRUTH “Lots of boomers are not going to survive.” “The world only cares when white people are affected.” "This is mother natures revenge and mankind deserves this.” “People will starve.”“Perhaps it's God's way of 'righting' a lot of wrongs about how we live our lives and how we treat the world…" “The world is ready for a shake up” “ I'm kinda delighted that our old world order has started to have the rug pulled from under it…" “Culling is natural.” “It’s a bit scary.”
  6. 6. CHILL OUT “I think it’s a big fuss over nothing. I lived through SARS, both the virus and the panic, so calm the fuck down.” “This is both a good time and a bad time to be single. Less germs and a good time for solitary contemplation. Not much in-person romance, but still, a chance to nurture future romance.” “Relax.” “While this is scary and we don’t know where it will lead, I’m comforted to remember I’m not living for things of this earth and natural life. God is in control.”
  7. 7. WHAT ABOUT OTHERS? “There are a lot of people who suffer from mental health issues and currently live alone. Self isolation will only exasperate their situation. People will be affected by this in so many ways.” “I'm scared that this could become the new normal for my children” “I am just so sad for those that just cannot get access to the help they need whether quarantined with an abuser or stuck in a wheelchair and can’t find transportation to medical help, etc. I just hate that I can’t help everyone.” “I am so scared for all of the waged workers who will be put in extremely vulnerable situations because of this. I am so so so worried that there won't be enough hospital beds and that the poor workers in the healthcare profession will not be able to physically or mentally sustain this
  8. 8. IS IT ME? “A lot of wondering about what life would have been like if we still lived in France.” “I’m forgotten up here”  “I feel a tad hopeless and I don't know if I am overpanicking or whether things are that bad.” “I’m feeling FOMO about not being able to participate in this collective pause because as a freelancer on a project I’m on deadline and can’t fully participate in this moment.” "I think that it’s imperative to keep an overall optimistic approach”
  9. 9. WHEN WILL IT END? “How will we go back to normal life? “ “I’m scared that I’ll never see my family again.” “I am scared about how nothing will be the same after.” “ I don't know when is this going to be over” “This could possibly change how we live, robbing us of the carefree freedom many of us enjoyed as children.” “What is this is the end of everything we know?”
  10. 10. WHAT WILL WE DO? "Where are the ‘levelheaded’ people who are supposed to be in leadership and why are they not stepping forward?” “Will this start to break down our own immune system if we are isolated for too long?” “How is the world going to change after this?” “I’m absolutely terrified, because people I know directly are so casual and relaxed about this and not taking any real precaution.Their actions could end up killing me.”
  11. 11. THIS COULD AFFECT ME “I'm pregnant in the first trimester and I'm scared to death of what will happen in the next two months.And if everything will be OK with me and the baby.” “I wonder if someone i know will die” “I'm terrified that my parents will get sick and I won't be able to see them. I live in a different country.” “I'm scared that the treatment I need to treat my cancer won't be available as the NHS becomes overwhelmed with cornonavirus” “I am immunocompromised, and I don't want to die.”
  12. 12. THE MICROCOSM “I don't know how I'm going to put up with my family these 15 days of quarantine.” “It has made my break up harder.” “I’m terrified that if the economy goes into a recession, I’ll be let go first.” “I’m secretly happy that I don’t have to go to this wedding I was dreading.” “My cat is upset that we’re home during her bedtime”
  13. 13. RESPECT AND PRAISE “Respect to all frontliners in this crisis: Doctors, Nurses, Volunteers, Researchers.They are real heroes” “Take care of the doctors, they are all we have left.” “The majority of countries work together.A little bit like the opposite of WW 3.When China sent doctors and nurses to help with the Italian outbreak it warmed my heart.”
  14. 14. SELF SEARCHING “It's cool to be alone” “Fighting adversity can be exciting as well as scary.” “Working from home is actually more productive than working in an office.” “I am happy for the slower life pace.” “I won’t let my professional role as a nurse cost me my unborn baby.” “I think I hate people.” “I don't think my mental health is going to withstand the isolation and anxiety”
  15. 15. LAY BLAME "I cannot stop imagining getting a phone call where one, or both, of my parents are in the hospital and don't make it back from this.Their death will be on this government's hands. It could have been stopped. It's keeping me up at night waiting for that call.” “Hatred for people who are not following regulation.” “I still can't believe how many people have a distrust of scientific experts and media in a time like this. Both are putting themselves at risk to inform the country and the world about the coronavirus.” “Company executives that cry over their stock price, but don't care that their employees are in distress do not deserve to be leaders of their industry.The world cannot continue to operate the way it has.We are too interconnected.We can't ignore a problem because it is happening "somewhere else" to "someone else".“ “We deserve the trouble we’re in because we elected (and re-elected) bad leaders.”
  16. 16. WHAT WORKS FORYOU “I am constantly scared of being sick and imagining symptoms but can't help to have social contact when possible (i.e. two friends coming over for game night)” “I am afraid to leave the city I am in to drive to my family because I don't want to leave my boyfriend. I am too scared that if I go see my family, I'll get stuck there in some weird shelter-in status and not be able to come back and be separated from him for the duration of this pandemic.We've been together around 6 months and while thats short in the long run, he makes me feel safe.And I don't want to be a part from him, even if it means not seeing my family for a bit.”
  17. 17. THE GREAT EXPERIMENT “Honestly if I could experience the virus, I would. Terrible right? I'm in my early 30's and in excellent health so I know I could survive it. My heart aches for the elderly; I don't want them going through this.” “I don't think we can really stop this disease. I wonder if we just let life go on as normal and everyone developed immunity.”
  18. 18. WE ARE ONE “Every single human being I know is going through this.And I profoundly feel the weight of humanity collectively facing our mortality, together, at the same time. It scares me” “We have a responsibility to the vulnerable to manage this in a responsible way to save lives.” “As a global threat, this is comparable to aliens attacking the earth.We work together to fight something that endangers us all.” “I see everyone taking very different stances and I don’t necessarily see the unity that we need right now.” “You all should have paid attention to how China was dealing with the virus.”
  19. 19. PUT ON A HAPPY FACE “I am a bit more pessimistic than I let on with family.” “Please be kind.” “I hope this forced slow down will let us change our lifestyle (in a positive manner).” “I’m extraordinarily privileged in this situation so I feel bad when I’m feeling overwhelmed or upset by it.” “Life is not a sure thing” “Humans rock.” “Be joyful” “We will be out of these days stronger than ever.”
