This work speaks both to the enormity of the global death toll attributed to the COVID-19 virus and to the continuing death toll as the pandemic rages on. I created this work on a disaster blanket (originally used in prisons and immigration detention centers) using yarn to hand-stitch a repetitive pattern of hash marks onto the background; one hash-mark cluster was left unfinished. The daily global death toll may be documented using the featured number flip chart. The flip chart had to be modified to accommodate the terrible realization that the number of deaths would (and has) exceeded six figures.
