Jeanne Randolph, Because crowded gatherings of people were forbidden, flyers or posters ceased to be stapled or glued to walls. There was nothing to announce. There were no invitations. Sidewalks were soon devoid of litter. Store shelves were pillaged even as the toilet paper industry insisted the planet would never run out of toilet paper. No doubt garbage was being produced., No. 25 in the series Parking Lot Pandemic, 2020 (printed 2021). Courtesy of the artist and Paul Petro Contemporary Art
