How will you feel “When All of This is Over…”? This series of five beautiful poetry films by international poets and diverse visual artists explore visions of life in a post-pandemic world.
Poet Polarbear, aka Steven Camden, explains the ideas behind his piece:
“My intention was to write something that zoomed in on those thoughts that I think have been running through all our heads, particularly those of us who live alone. I was very keen for the words to be spoken by someone less enamoured by technology and social media etc. than a lot of us, who might feel even more cut off by the restrictions.
I think it’s important to not assume things will go back to ’normal’ in terms of a return to what was before, and more to think about a new normal that has all we have been through ingrained in it. The world has changed because we have changed and we changed because we’ve had to.
I wanted to remember and celebrate the simple pleasures that we will hopefully be able to bring back into our lives soon enough.”
