'Wiped out' 2020

Hand printed letter by letter on toilet paper, this piece explores the artist's anxiety in relation to the current pandemic situation. Having contamination based OCD, the artist spends (especially now) a large portion of her time engaged in cleaning rituals that are time consuming, frustrating and tedious. For a total of over 24 hours, Laura printed her intrusive thoughts regarding the pandemic, letter by letter onto the toilet paper, a task that was long, laborious and tiresome, a process reflecting the nature of her anxiety filled thoughts and compulsions.
