During COVID, I documented social distancing motifs, physical manifestations of 1.5 metre rule, I was standing on.  

Ironically, before 2020, O and X signified a hug and kiss, symbols of physical closeness, now they’re inverted to effect physical distancing. Standing apart now helps protect those we love. 

A signifier of O and X is Noughts and Crosses, a game of strategy where the players’ early decision-making skills are significant in determining the outcome. The game often depends on the first moves and frequently ends with no winners, an apt metaphor for  COVID management experiments.
