From March 2020, the world is as if inside a vortex that has actually disrupted our habits and changed our lives. So Paula Zuccotti decided to launch her personal project “future archaeology of a global lockdown”.
What are 15 things that are helping you get through this time?
From this question starts the project of the Italian-Argentinean artist that consists in creating an original snapshot of the objects that most of all are still essential for us today. Exactly one year later she managed to create an extensive collection with over 1,000 images from 50 different countries.
From Argentina to Italy, via Spain, Paula Zuccotti has collected and catalogued each image, finding both striking similarities and differences. A collection made without distinction, the designer collected each shot demonstrating how simple everyday objects can tell extraordinary stories about our lives.
“Objects are great storytellers and the aim is to reflect upon our habits, needs, hopes, fears, desires and coping mechanisms during this time in our lives so we can learn about ourselves both as individuals and a now unified global community.“
“Future archaeology of a global lockdown” is a sort of time capsule that will help us not to forget the habits of this period. The project is still open and is getting a good participation, reaching even the most remote places.
