Quarantine Dress Up

"Quarantine Dress Up" is an online dress up game where players dress an avatar for a day in the life of quarantine. The game is coded in Java using the integrated development environment Processing. The work is a reflection on the mundane in these unprecedented times while also reflecting the disparity in different people's experiences of quarantine. The game is self-critical of the reality it presents, emphasized by the inclusion of the misguided and tone-deaf celebrity sing-along version of the John Lennon song “Imagine”.

"STRANGE FRUIT" stop motion by Elcie Merck

Strange Fruit


"Strange Fruit" is a stop motion animation created by Elcie Merck. She created it her sophomore year at MassArt in the Animation 1 class with Professor Hayley Morris. "Strange Fruit" was made with found objects for the "Breaking the surface" project. This stop motion was made as a tribute to the song of the same title by Billie Holiday. It is a reflection of the Jim crow era of the rural south.
